The aim of the Advocacy Service is to provide independent support, advice and information to children and young people so their views and wishes are heard, their rights are respected, and that they are assisted if they wish to give feedback or make a complaint.  The specific objectives of the service are to provide an advocacy service, which is independent and confidential, and satisfies National Standards for the Provision of Children’s Advocacy Services.
The Independent Visitors service is there to befriend young people and offer them consistency, support, advice and encouragement.  The service will also contribute to the welfare of children in care by promoting their individual needs and by encouraging them to exercise their right to participate in decisions taken about them.
Halton Borough Council Social Care is committed to providing high quality services for our diverse community.  We invite only professional, reliable, financially viable providers to help us achieve our vision:
