Are you a child or young person in care or using aftercare services?
Not feeling listened to?
Unhappy with decisions being made about you?
The Children’s Rights service can help.
The Children’s Rights Service is there if you are having problems or need help or advice. A Children's Rights officers main job is to make sure people are listening to you.
They are not social workers and are independent. They will not tell anyone else anything you say to them something that you want kept between you and them, unless you or someone else could be seriously harmed.
If you have a complaint they can support you or speak for you if you want. You may be unhappy about:
- Plans for your future
- Contact with your family
- Placement change
- Staying over with friends
- Your education
- Behaviour of your carer or worker
They can also attend your review with you if you want.
We also have a website My Voice Trafford where you can find out about different groups for young people in Trafford, find out about staying safe, plus there's advice for children in care and/or with an EHCP.
