NYAS are sending our best wishes to everyone right now in these uncertain times.

We want to reassure you we’ll do everything in our power to support vulnerable children and young people with independent advocacy and legal representation across England and Wales.

We believe it is critical to do our part to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 whilst still delivering our range of services safely. As a national rights based charity, our teams are well placed and experienced in remote and mobile working. A challenge like Coronavirus means young people may need support in new and different ways. We are confident that we can use alternative communication methods which will enable us to continue to deliver our services for as long as it is possible to do so.

Our helpline is ready to support you please call 0808 808 1001 or email help@nyas.net

The National Youth Advocacy Service (NYAS) is a rights based charity which operates across England and Wales for children, young people and adults.
