Support for looked after children and care leavers

If you are, or have ever been, looked after by the Council you can get support from our Right to Rights Service. We will help you with anything that is important to you and provide you with information, advice and assistance to help put things right or to help you to understand what’s happening and why.

We will also listen to you and help with any concerns you have about the service you have received either now or in the past from the Council. We want to hear about things that you are happy with as well, so that we can help to make sure they continue to happen for you and other looked after children and young people.

Our services also include independent advocacy. This is where our workers make sure that your voice is heard and acted upon. We do this by speaking up for you or helping you to talk about things that are important to you. It’s a way of helping you to stand up for your rights.
