We need to ensure children, young people and families in Bridgend, Merthyr Tydfil and Rhondda Cynon Taf live safe, healthy and fulfilled lives and that they can achieve their full potential. To do this, we need to ensure their voices are heard, listened to, acted upon and responded to whether changes are made or not.
We need to work together to build strong and resilient communities as while Cwm Taf Morgannwg can be a great place to grow up, children, young people and families do face challenges.
You may hear people referencing ‘children or young people with complex needs’. The Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act defines this group as children or young people aged between 0 and 25 (who are still eligible for services).
