Tyn Y Pwll Residential Home, Dinas Mawddwy, Machynlleth, Powys
We have been made aware of allegations of abuse at this home.
If one accepts that the Tyn-y-Pwll project achieved a satisfactory measure of success, it may be worthwhile to attempt to identify some of the factors which contributed to this. There will not, indeed should not, be any attempt to claim that these factors were exclusive to Tyn-y-Pwll. It is the writer’s hope that most of what follows will be acceptable to, and easily identified by most residential workers. It is hoped that many of the same principles are already in practice in most establishments but, where this is not the case they may be sympathetically considered by authorities and senior staff.
