Advocacy Matters

Birmingham Children's Hospital - Hear me out!

At Advocacy Matters we believe every child and young person has a voice and we enable young people to express their views, wishes and feelings by encouraging them to speak up. Independent Advocacy tries to provide young people with sufficient information to make decisions that directly affect their lives.

Birmingham Children's Hospital

Our 'Hear Me Out' project also provides Independent Advocacy to young people aged 13-18 years old in Birmingham Children’s Hospital. An Independent Advocate supports a young person to have a voice and to be listened to and, empowers the young person to make the decisions that they want for themself. As one young person said, “My advocate helped me change my life, without them I would still be unhappy”.
