Independent Advocacy Perth and Kinross

Independent Advocacy Perth & Kinross (IAPK) provides independent advocacy for children and young people who have either a learning disability, autism 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. IAPK can advocate for 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. In addition, IAPK also provide independent advocacy for children who are known to Social Work Services but who live at home and who may be going through processes such as children’s hearings or additional support for learning. They also provide independent advocacy for unpaid carers of children and young people who have a disability or illness.
