What we do
We help young people navigate their way through challenging times: whether they are facing difficulties at school, mental health, immigration or youth justice issues, are being denied benefits, or are homeless.
Holistic support - our model of advocacy
Using the law for social change
Children as Spies - our latest campaign
Holistic support cases
We think the best way to support young people to reach their potential is to identify and work on all of their needs. We have a team of advocates who work with young people everyday.
