Powys Advocacy for Children and Young People (Tros Gynnal Plant)
The service, based in Builth Wells ensures that children and young people in Powys have their say in issues that affect their lives. Powys Advocacy for Children and Young People, which is a Tros Gynnal Plant project, supports young people to have a voice through having an independent advocate who can talk to them and help them to make choices and navigate systems.
We support young people to exercise their rights under the Children Act 2004 and to make representation and complaints where they are unhappy and dissatisfied with the service/treatment they receive.
The advocacy service provided by Tros Gynnal Plant is available to a wide range of young people either living in Powys or from Powys including
Looked after children and care leavers
Children in the child protection system
Disabled children known to Children with Disabilities Teams
Children and young people who want to make a complaint about their service from the Local Health Board
