About this service

Leeds Children's Rights Service is an independent rights and advocacy service for children, young people and care leavers looked after by Leeds Social Care.
We provide advocacy support for all looked after children, including disabled children, unaccompanied asylum seeking children, those in secure accommodation and those placed out of authority by Leeds.

The service ensures that those identified above are informed of their rights and supported to participate in the design and delivery of the service and involved in decision making which affects them. We can attend reviews, give advice and information, help have your say in decisions that affect you, get answers to your questions, help you to sort out problems or make a complaint.
If you think you or someone you are supporting as part of your role, would benefit from this support then please contact our team on 0113 2395570 or email: [email protected]
