Triangle are very proud of the amazing late Dr Ruth Marchant who authored "Opening doors: suggested practice for medical professionals for when a child might be close to telling about abuse" in conjunction with Dr Jamie Carter and Dr Charlie Fairhurst before she sadly passed away two years ago. Now published, this article reminds us all again of what a special person and powerhouse of knowledge we have lost. Read it here: (link)
One of our intermediaries has written an article and recorded a podcast on "understanding the role of an intermediary" - to learn more, read the article and get the links here: (link)
Triangle is an independent organisation enabling children and young people (up to age 30) 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.
Triangle are pleased to have worked collaboratively on this project consulting with children, young people and parents about their experiences.

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.
