Young people do not always feel listened to or involved in care planning decisions. This is why an advocate can be so important. Advocacy is about representing the views, wishes, and needs of children and young people to decision-makers and helping them to navigate the system. Children have a right to an advocate to speak on their behalf in their dealings with the care system.

This course will explain advocacy and the roles and responsibilities of an independent advocate. It will also explain what makes a great advocate and the different kinds of advocacy available.

The main learning objectives of the course are as follows:
