• Specialist and accessible support for children and young people who don’t speak English, have poor mental health or who have a disability or profound communication needs
• An Independent Person or Investigating Officer to ensure a child’s rights are upheld in the complaints process and at Secure Accommodation Reviews (when decisions are taken about whether to keep a young person in secure care for their own welfare)

• Training, consultancy and specialist information to promote good practice and develop opportunities for children and young people to feed into the process of affecting change
