Barnardo's CAPS

About CAPS

Hi, we are a small team who offer support to children and young people placed in care by Wakefield Local Authority. You can live in the local area or further away. We also support young people who have Child Protection Conferences in Wakefield.  As a children's charity we are independent of the Local Authority. We are a busy team who support 100's of children and young people every year.

What we do at a glance: 

  • Advocacy support for young people looked after by Wakefield Council.
  • Advocacy support to young people over 11 who have child protection conferences.
  • •Independent Visitor service to children and young people looked after by Wakefield Council.
  • Placement Interviews - we speak to young people over 11 when they move from one placement to another to find out about their experience of care.
  • Missing Interviews - we visit young people who are in care who have been classed as missing by the police. We do this to see if there is any support or advice we can give and find out why they went missing.
  • Help young people in care who want to make a complaint.
