More families in the Ystradgynlais area can now access Flying Start support.

Flying Start is a Welsh Government funded Programme and is available in targeted areas supporting families to give 0-4year olds a Flying Start in life. 

The scheme is available for certain postcode areas in Welshpool, Newtown, Brecon, Llandrindod Wells, and Ystradgynlais.

Families can check if they are eligible and apply for a place on the Powys County Council website.  

Cllr Susan McNicholas, Cabinet Member for Future Generations said: “The increase of Flying Start support to more postcodes in the Ystradgynlais area is a really positive step. More families can now access funded childcare, enhanced health visiting, parenting support, and speech and language support.”

Cllr Sandra Davies, Cabinet Member for Future Generations and local County Councillor for Cwmtwrch said: “The expansion of Flying Start support to the Cwmtwrch area is an excellent boost for our community. I am thrilled that more families can benefit from additional support. I urge families with children aged 0-4 years to check if they are eligible as it will make a great difference to the lives of many families.”
