The Birmingham Children's Trust advocacy postcard is a great resource to provide a voice for children and young people in care, care leavers and children within the child protection process and family group confidence. This might be helpful for you to use in meetings with social workers or health professionals. An advocate will always do their best but may not be able to make things better- you can say what you want an advocate to help you with by getting in contact via or call 0121 303 7217.

Our Voice, Our Services, part of Solihull's Children in Care Council, meet monthly to get together and talk about subjects important to you. This is a great opportunity to make friends and have your say about how services are run. If you would like to find out more, contact or visit.
