Additional Information:This paper draws on the work of five evaluation case studies to examine how child and youth advocacy is constructed by the users and providers of services. The paper therefore challenges the development of pro-active advocacy approaches, where dominant discourses maintaining the status of children and young people as a marginalised group minimise the impact of advocacy in promoting change. Through the studies it can be seen that the skills of advocates have to go beyond an ability to communicate with children and young people, or manage systems, to find strategies for challenging discourses of childhood.
