Coram Voice

Coram Voice enables and equips children and young people to hold to account the services that are responsible for their care. We uphold the rights of children and young people to actively participate in shaping their own lives.

We do this because we believe in a society which recognises and willingly accepts its responsibilities to children and young people, where the inequalities and discrimination they currently face have been eradicated, where they are fully engaged in all decisions made about their lives and where their views, needs and feelings are at the core of those decisions.

Coram Voice offers:

  • A free national helpline staffed by specially trained professionals called advocates
  • A network of independent advocates in the community who can meet with children and young people face-to-face to discuss their problems and ways they can be resolved
  • Independent advocates who provide a regular visiting service in the community to children and young people in specialist residential settings (including mental health units)
  • Specialist and accessible support for children and young people who don’t speak English, have poor mental health or who have a disability or profound communication needs
  • An Independent Person or Investigating Officer to ensure a child’s rights are upheld in the complaints process and at Secure Accommodation Reviews (when decisions are taken about whether to keep a young person in secure care for their own welfare)
  • An Independent Visitor to become a reliable friend for children who don’t have regular family contact
  • Training, consultancy and specialist information to promote good practice and develop opportunities for children and young people to feed into the process of affecting change
