The theme of the day was PiA’s specialist advocacy services for children and young people delivered across Scotland with particular focus on mental health advocacy support including both the challenges and some of the success stories. Linda Bailey (CEO) presented the Annual Report advising that PiA had supported 6 young people to complete an Advanced Statement over the past year which was a remarkable achievement.
