“It’s not always easy to admit it but we all need help sometimes. If you’ve got a problem or something you’re worried about you’ll find lots of people and places that can help here.
REMEMBER – whatever the problem is, talking about it can be the first step to solving it. If there’s an adult you trust like a parent, carer or a teacher talk to them first about what’s happening.”
Coram Voice can help you to have an advocate.
“An Advocate is different from any other professional.
They are there to help and support you and to make sure you are involved in all decisions about your life. Advocates also help you speak out when things go wrong. They make sure you know your rights and help you to get the support you need from Children’s Services.”
