Our Sandwell Advocacy Voice and Empowerment (SAVE) Project is now up and running!!
Our SAVE Project is a three-year funded project from Children in Need and will provide an advocacy service that focuses on the needs of children and young people with poor mental health and behavioural issues.
The SAVE Project is completely independent and provides qualified advocacy practitioners and trained volunteers to provide one to one person centred advocacy support. We will work to build a trusting relationship to directly support children and young people and ensure that their needs, rights and wishes are articulated when accessing, planning and delivering their support and care services.
This Project will support children and young people to:
• Build confidence and skills to enable them to speak up for themselves so that they feel listened to and involved in decision making.
• Have choices regarding accessing appropriate support services.
• Build relationships of trust with other professionals.
Please contact us should you require further information or would like to discuss the project in more detail. Referrals can be taken directly from the young person themselves, from a third party or from an agency. We take referrals by telephone, email and face to face.
