Advocacy for disabled children and young people can lead to considerable improvements for them and their families, yet many are missing out on this vital support, says a new report from The Children’s Society.

Maggie Atkinson, the Children's Commissioner, is championing the development of a blueprint for advocacy services to help vulnerable children. The blueprint will help to ensure that these children have ready access to professionals and services that can support them in having a real say in decisions affecting their lives, under the United Nation's Convention on the Rights of the Children.

Home Office Minister James Brokenshire has announced that from 1st July 2011 the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) centre will use its expertise in protecting vulnerable children to take the lead in missing children's services across the UK.

A report published by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has shown that almost all OECD countries have seen a rise in poverty levels amongst households with children. The Doing Better for Families report calls for governments to ensure they have family support policies in place which protect the most vulnerable.
