With help from children and young people across Wales, we have developed some resources to complement our Change That Lasts approach which ensures that you and your needs are at the heart of everything we do. We hope these resources will help you to better understand our work and show you where you can go for help if you ever need it. Remember, any support you receive should always put you and your needs first, and professionals must take the time to find out what is most important to you.
