We keep our ‘No Child Turned Away’ promise by supporting any child who ask for help while actively seeking ways of helping the hardest to reach young people.We support children and young people to participate in shaping their own lives and hold to account services responsible for their care, by providing advocacy and independent services and by campaigning for system change.

Coram Voice's activities include:

  • An independent and confidential advocacy service, accessed directly by young people via a freephone helpline number
  • Visiting advocacy services to children in residential care, secure children’s homes and psychiatric units
  • Policy and campaigning work aimed at promoting a child-centred care system
  • Investigating Officers and Independent Persons to assist in the investigation of complaints under the Children Act 1989 and Independent Persons for Secure Accommodation Reviews
  • Independent Visitor Service for children with no regular family contact
  • Specialist training programmes for professionals focusing on advocacy, children’s rights, leaving care, complaints, participation and young refugees
  • Participation services through which young people can shape both Coram Voice’s services and the broader care system
