Children and Young People

Vale of Glamorgan Children and Young People Services work to promote and safeguard the well being of children and young people within their families


Where this is not possible, to provide good quality alternative care. We do this by helping and supporting children whose health and well being would suffer if we did not provide services.


Access to Services 

At times it may be necessary to prioritise our services. However, where there are serious concerns for a child, we will provide a same day response.


Our aim is to keep families together wherever possible, and therefore we work closely with children, their parents, relatives or other carers and with other organisations, to find the best solution. Our work will always take into account the child and family's religious, cultural and social background and the specific needs of the individual.
