Freemasons donate £23,625 to Pembrokeshire People First

Reading Time: 2 minutes The grant will fund a part-time Parent Advocate role, who will work with parents for at least six months. The Advocate will provide professional, independent representation for parents, working with them to examine choices and connect with service providers. They attend meetings with or instead of their clients, which requires specialist knowledge of the legal and care system and an understanding of the emotional needs of the parents.
