Children & Young People.

Independent Advocacy Perth & Kinross support children and young people up to 25 years of age who have either a learning disability or experience mental health issues and who feel they would like advocacy support.

Children and young people often want to tell someone how they feel but are afraid or don’t know how or don’t know how to take issues forward through adult systems. We can support a child or young person by speaking for them or being by their side while they speak, to make sure their views are heard and they understand the information being given to them.
