Overview of our organisation and the services we offer

Anglia Care Trust has been operating for over 40 years working closely with Local Authorities and other statutory and voluntary organisations. Our services are associated with three main themes:

Community Safety – helping people to feel safer

Housing – helping people to keep a roof over their heads

Advice, Guidance and Advocacy – helping people to be heard

Currently we provide advocacy services for children, young people up to the age of 18 who are looked after children, involved in child protection processes and/or are children in need. Cases can vary in issues for example issues with regards to education, care, placement to complex circumstances involving children in the care system becoming pregnant and being assessed via the court system.  Our advocates are able to provide instructed and non instructed advocacy to ensure all clients have a voice and are involved in decisions that affect their lives. We believe the skills of our trained advocates are transferable when providing advocacy to a wide range of clients.

Why you should choose us!

An advocacy relationship is unique, unlike any other professional relationship. The process is led by the wishes and views of the young person, with the advocate acting only upon his/her express permission and instructions.

Advocacy works on different levels:

  • It is independent, operating without opinion;
  • If focuses the mind of professionals, placing the young person at the heart of decisions which are about them and which may impact on the young person for the whole of their adult life;
  • For the young person, it ensures that their views are heard and gives them a sense that they have some control and understanding of the decisions being made about them and for them.
Our services are client focused, to ensure individuals receiving a service remain central to the delivery we run quaterly Service Users Forums. ACT is committed to enhancing Service User involvment and thereby enabling Service User views to further shape the strategic direction and services of the organisation. The aim is to trap Service Users views and ensure that information flows through the organisation to the Board of Trustees and influences decision making at all levels.
