The role of the Advocate is to provide children, youth and their non-offending family members with child and youth friendly, trauma-informed support. Advocates play a unique role as they are not part of the recorded interview process or the investigative team. Regardless of the outcome of the investigation, Advocates offer ongoing support and service connection to meet the unique needs of each child and their family.
The Child & Youth Advocate:
Beacon & Moose help to create feelings of safety and calm for children, youth and families while at our Centres. They provide emotional and relaxation support, as well as deep pressure therapy. Helping calm emotions can help children, youth and all of us think better and feel better!
Beacon & Moose are here to provide unconditional love and support to all visitors at our Centres!
If you do not wish to be supported by a Facility Dog while at the Centre, the dog will not be present.
Please notify the Advocate upon arrival if you have any fears, allergies etc.
