Funded by the Department for Education, our Always Heard service means that, for the first time, there is a single national advocacy advice service and gateway that young people can use to access the vital advocacy services across the country, and an advocacy ‘safety net’ for when things go wrong and they cannot get advocacy from their local service. Always Heard is the only national service in England that can provide an advocate to children and young people who cannot access the local advocacy support they are entitled to.
