Voice

Voice is committed to getting a better deal for children in care. We are a leading national charity specialising in providing advocacy to hildren and young people in public care and those in need while campaigning for lasting improvements to their lives. The 61,000 children 'in care' are among some of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable children in the UK today. Many of them are failed by the system that has been set up to care and protect them. They often suffer from insensitive and bureaucratic decisions, some become further abused and we know that most leave care without the life skills to live successfully independently. Voice aims to empower vulnerable children and young people to speak out for improvements to the quality of their lives by providing advice and support face to face and via our freephone helpline. Voice is the working name of Voice for the Child in Care.
