Advocates are there to act on your behalf. The Rep’s Office doesn’t work for a Ministry or Community Living BC – it works for you.
Any information gathered about you is confidential. While most of the Rep’s advocacy services are done over the phone, advocates can also come and meet you in person.
The Rep can't step in and change a decision that has been made about you, but we can help you get your views heard and considered with the people who can make those decisions. You have a right live somewhere you feel safe, so if you do not feel safe in your new foster home, please contact us.
Contact us to learn more about youth agreements and how they work. We can help you figure out why you were not eligible and can help you talk to the people who made the decision so they know how you feel.
