In all cases of child advocacy in both Africa and Europe, we use the three R’s method of Rescue, Restore and Represent
Rescue – Working with local police to restore children in captivity or inhumane scenarios.
Restore – Working with local Social workers to restore the children to their families and community safe.
Represent – Working with public prosecution to represent children in court
VOAC collaborate and partner with local lawyers and legal Practitioners ready to support child cases where inhumanity is experienced. Within African states we strongly advocate for the implementation of the African Charter for the rights of Children and the UNCRC. Please email us at email@example.com. for a case by case assessment.

The Migrant Children’s Project promotes the rights of refugee and migrant children, young people and families and works to ensure that they receive the protection and support they need. We provide one-to-one legal advice through an advice line and outreach programme, a range of free resources and online information, and training to practitioners working with young refugees and migrants. The Project also uses research and policy advocacy, combining specialist technical knowledge about the domestic and international law with evidence from frontline work, to ensure children’s rights are embedded in law and in practice.
The strength of the Migrant Children’s Project (MCP) is its comprehensive approach to changing individuals lives, as well as law, policy and practice through training to frontline professionals, legal advice and representation, strategic litigation and policy advocacy to ensure the best outcomes for migrant children. It is the interplay between the different areas covered that we believe allows for systemic change and the greatest impact.
The MCP advice line offers free and confidential advice on the rights of migrant children and young people and issues affecting them, including children who are separated and those in families. Call +44 207 636 8505 (line open 10am to 4pm Tuesday to Thursday) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
