About the organisation
Sandwell Advocacy is an independent advocacy organisation set up to safeguard the needs, rights and wishes of marginalised and/or vulnerable individuals throughout Sandwell. We are currently supporting children and young people (5-18 years of age) who provide regular or on-going care and emotional support to a family member. We define a young carer not by the amount of time spent caring but by the impact it has on their life. This could involve a family member or individual who may be affected by a physical impairment/learning difficulty, mental health condition, drug and alcohol addiction and any other long term illness or condition. Sandwell Advocacy works with the Young Carer and their families where it is identified that children and young people are experiencing issues associated with their caring responsibilities. We provide an integrated package of support that includes crisis intervention and long term advocacy provision. We offer support that works within a person centred, but family orientated approach working with all those within the home.
