Children, young people and their parents are invited to attend the launch of Ceredigion's new multi-agency team, Tîm Teulu, which assists and supports families to enhance children's well being.

Tîm Teulu is funded by the Welsh Assembly Government through Cymorth; Ceredigion County Council's Social Services Department; Plant Dewi; the Youth Offending Service and the National Health Service.
