Triangle is an independent organisation enabling children and young people (up to the age of 25) to communicate about important things, especially in legal proceedings. Our vision is to reposition children and young people in society as competent communicators and active agents in their own lives. In the last 20 years we have worked with over 10,000 children and young people across the UK, through intermediary, advocacy, consultancy, specialist support, interviewing and expert opinion services.
You can read about Triangle's work in a 2018 article in the Guardian here
Triangle provides skilled support for children and young people in different settings including legal proceedings and enables children's communication when it matters most, for example when children or young people’s evidence is required by the courts, when their views are needed to inform decisions about their lives, and when adults are trying to understand and respond to concerning behaviours.
Triangle is an independent organisation; not part of any government department, charity or voluntary agency.
We have a strong multidisciplinary team with a shared value base, skilled at communicating with children and young people with a wide range of needs.
We have particular expertise with very young children and those with complex communication needs arising from impairment, neglect or trauma. We aim to set the standard in the UK and beyond for careful and effective communication with children and young people.
We are regularly instructed in the most complex and high profile situations, and have been involved in many landmark developments in children’s evidence.
It is with great sadness that one of Triangle's Directors, Ruth Marchant has died following a long battle with cancer. She will be greatly missed as a Director, colleague and friend. Find out more about Ruth here.
