Support Advocacy This is a more intensive style advocacy than our general advocacy service, providing a variety of help around issues linked to domestic violence and family. Many people find it extremely difficult to manage their way around the maze of processes, procedures; to attend conferences and meetings linked to Child Protection and family matters; engage with the police and courts linked to domestic violence issues; and to make decisions and changes for the safety and wellbeing of themselves and their children. Specialist Intensive support advocacy can help in the following situations: For parents involved in child protection, or safeguarding procedure, requiring engagement with social services or other statutory agencies. For parents involved in meetings linked to the healthcare or education of children including TAF (team around the family), CAF (common assessment framework) and PEP (personal education plan). Domestic violence and sexual violence/abuse related issues including police/court, housing and safety orders and injunctions, legal appointments and divorce proceedings.
