Thank you for all your support - it really helped me at a very difficult time. I feel my advocate was a great listener to all my worries and concerns, she was not judgemental and was very understanding and made things happen.
Frankie, Young Person
I have really enjoyed working with NYAS and have taken part in various projects. I liked that I got a say and this has helped me to become a more confident person in myself. I enjoyed getting involved as I think our voice as young people is very important
