Advocacy and Independent Visiting.

Advocacy

We offer Independent Professional Advocacy Services to children and young people living in Merthyr Tydfil, Rhondda Cynon Taf and Bridgend. Please see our leaflets here: Cwm Taf Advocacy and Makaton.

What is Advocacy?

Advocacy is about having someone to listen to you and helping you to be heard. It can help you to tell the people who make decisions about your life what you think and how you feel.

Advocacy can help you to:

  • get your voice heard
  • know and understand your rights
  • take part in meetings and reviews
  • sort things out with your social worker or carer
  • make a complaint.

Our advocacy service is independent – we are not part of Social Services.

Our eligibility criteria:

  • Looked After Child
  • Child in Need of Care and Support under the Social Services Health and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014
  • Children and Young People Leaving Care – up to 21 years of age (25 years of age if in further education)
