Barnardo's Cornwall Independent Visitor and Advocacy Service (CIVAS)

CIVAS works with children in need and children in care – supporting and advising children and young people and ensuring their voice is heard.

CIVAS Independent Visitors
An independent visitor is a stable adult who is completely different from the Local Authority, and is there to visit, befriend and advise a child or young person who is looked after by the Local Authority.

CIVAS Advocates
An advocate is an independent person who is there to ensure that the voice of children and young people is heard where decisions are being made. Advocates can help children to understand the process of a meeting. Advocates empower children and young people to express their views, wishes and feelings themselves or express their wishes for them.
