Powys Advocacy Network was launched with the aim of promoting closer collaboration across organisations whose primary purpose is the delivery of an advocacy service or who provide a range of services including advocacy. Network members provide information, advice and updates on what is happening in Advocacy across Powys, across all ages.
The network is open to any third sector organisation based or operating in Powys who provides advocacy services including Mental Health Advocacy, Children’s Advocacy, Adults and Older Adults including advocacy services for people living with Learning Disabilities, Unpaid Carers and Dementia.
