Essex Advocacy Service

This service provides:

Advocacy and participation

Advocacy and participation : Supporting the right of a looked after child to be heard and involved in decisions through 1:1 support and independent visitors.

Essex Advocacy Service is run by Barnardo’s. It is a free service for children and young people who are receiving an Essex County Council Social Care Service and are:

  • Aged up to 19  (or 25 if you have a learning disability)
  • Living in Care
  • A Care Leaver

Listening to children is at the heart of Barnardo's work; our work in advocacy particularly shows Barnardo's commitment to giving children and young people a voice.

Here at Essex Advocacy Service we are able to offer our services in English, Albanian and Polish. If, however, you require services in another language, we will attempt to provide an interpreter.
