New advocacy model
The new model consists of five main areas for development. In 2010 we plan to issue statutory guidance on the model.
Five main areas for development
- Open-Access Advocacy: improved and increased access for all children and young people to advocacy, often called Universal Advocacy
- Integrated Specialist Advocacy Services: improved coordination and coherence of advocacy services specifically for vulnerable children and young people
- Quality: ensuring the quality and consistency of advocacy provided to children and young people
- Involvement of children and young people in the development of advocacy in Wales
- Evaluation of advocacy services for children and young people to ensure high quality, equity and effectiveness.
Work so far
The work to date has been:
- June 2009: advisory guidance issued ‘A Guide to the Model for Delivering Advocacy Services for Children and Young People’
- May 2008: plenary debate on advocacy in the Assembly Chamber
- May 2008: Welsh Assembly Government's Written Response to the Recommendations
- March 2008: cross party Children and Young People’s Committee in the National Assembly for Wales took evidence and gave recommendations on the new model
- March-July 2007: consultation on a new service model for delivering advocacy services for children and young people
In 2010 we plan to issue statutory guidance on the model for delivering advocacy for children and young people.
This will include commissioning guidance for Children and Young People’s Partnerships who will take the lead on future commissioning of advocacy services for children and young people, on a regional or sub-regional basis.
