The Children’s Commissioner for England has published two reports on independent advocacy for children and young people in care.

The first, ‘Helping children get the care experience they need,’ makes proposals to strengthen advocacy support and therefore improve the quality of children’s care experience.

The second, ‘Independent advocacy: impact and outcomes for children and young people,’ was commissioned from The Centre for Children and Young People’s Participation at the University of Central Lancashire, in partnership with the National Children’s Bureau Research Centre. This looks at the impact and outcomes of independent advocacy for children and young people, and suggests ways in which outcomes could be captured.
