Advocacy - Who Cares? Scotland

Delivered by Who Cares? Scotland
  • Human rights advice

Who Cares? Scotland provides independent advocacy by working one on one with a young person to help them have a say in what is happening to them. We provide professional, independent advocacy services in most local authority areas in Scotland. We strive to provide advocacy that helps young people feel respected, included, listened to and understood.

We’re independent to any care services you might receive – this is crucial because we want young people to be supported and understood with no conflict of interest.

We also believe independent advocacy should be available to Care Experienced people, in some form, as a lifelong offer – which is why we created our Helpline.

The Helpline was set up to support Care Experienced people by providing lifelong advocacy throughout Scotland. We can support, signpost and offer choice when you feel there is nowhere else to turn.
