Our Child and Youth Advocate
The Child and Youth Advocate is a full-time staff member at Oak Centre whose role is to help you navigate the system. Our Child and Youth Advocate will be there to greet you when you arrive at Oak Centre, and help your child to feel comfortable before their interview. While your child is being interviewed, the Advocate will meet with you to discuss what supports your family might need. The Advocate will provide emotional and practical support, service referrals, and make sure your child’s best interests remain at the center of the process. Once the interview is over you can meet with the interviewer while your child enjoys the activities in our family room, accompanied by Oak Centre staff. Following your visit to Oak Centre, the Child and Youth Advocate will follow up with you and provide support to you and your child for as long as necessary.
