Advocacy is when a person makes sure that someone's voice is heard. This is by speaking up for them or supporting them to speak up for themselves.
If you are looked after by Newcastle Children's Services and want to make your views heard or to make a complaint about your service you can get support from the National Youth Advocacy Service (NYAS).
