Wakefield CAPS (Children's Advocacy & Participation Service)

What we do

Wakefield CAPS provides an Advocacy and an Independent Visitor service to children and young people where Wakefield are the responsible local authority.
If young people are in care, have a child protection or Education Health and Care Plan or being supported by the Youth Offending Team we should be able to support them.
Advocacy is an independent service to support young people understand and speak up about their rights. Advocacy ensures young people’s wishes, feelings and rights are taken into account when decisions are being made about their future. We can help young people challenge and make formal complaints if they need to.

Independent Visitors are training volunteers that are matched with young people who are in care. They spend regular time with the young person (usually once every 2 weeks) to do things you both enjoy.

Depending on your situation our age range covers 0-25 years.
