Additional Information:This paper examines how, in Family Group Conferences, the personal position of children and young people was enhanced, how they felt stronger within the family network and how they were able to participate in decision making with advocacy support. This was a particularly contentious study because the empowering principles underpinning this method of decision making mean there were paradoxes in the notion of advocacy support. Advocates created the space for children and young people to be heard, but to be successful all the adults involved needed to consider the operation of power through themselves and the child/young person concerned.
