Barnardo's will be the voice for vulnerable children in Warwickshire

Ian Hughes 13th Jul, 2018

VULNERABLE young people will continue to be represented by Barnardo’s in the area after the charity secured a council contract.

Barnardo’s Coventry and Warwickshire Children’s Rights Service will provide advocates to children and young people supported by social workers to ensure the youngster’s voice is heard when decisions are made about their future.

They will also provide mentors to those in care, helping to boost their self-confidence and independence through activities including sports, hobbies and trips to the cinema.

The charity faced stiff competition for the £750,000 three-year contract, which has been signed with Warwickshire County Council and Coventry City Council.

Barnardo’s has provided the service for the past 12 years and says its success rate – with all children last year saying they were happy with the support they received – meant it was once again chosen to continue running the service.

The charity’s children’s services manager Sarah Wager said: “The renewal of the contract is a tribute to the achievements of our staff and volunteers who work so hard to transform the lives of vulnerable children and young people.”
