The Team

 

About Us

We’re a small, friendly bunch with an office in Aberaeron, another in Pembroke Dock and a third in Llanelli! Our Advocates, Emma, Kerry and Kath are fully trained with loads of experience. They can help you get your problems sorted.

So what is Advocacy?

Advocacy can help you to:

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

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

Can you help me?

We support ‘Looked After’ children and young people and ‘Children In Need’. Eligibility criteria for the service is slightly different in each authority.

We have supported lots and lots of children and young people in lots of different situations. Click here to read some examples of how we have helped.
