At NYAS we are all about standing up for children and young people’s rights, making sure their voices are heard and that they get the help and support they need. We are very aware this is currently an unsettling and worrying time for children, young people and their families.

We are here for you.

At the moment, we are following UK Government guidelines regarding face-to-face contact. If we cannot meet up in person, we can successfully deliver all our services via phone, text, email, and video calling.

If you are in care, leaving care or know someone who needs independent advice and support, please contact our free phone helpline:

We listen to what children and young people want,
care about what they say, and empower them to get their voice heard.

We ensure their wishes and feelings are expressed and acted
upon to improve their situation and help them build a better future.

We will never stop in our efforts to influence, lobby and campaign
to bring about positive changes and ensure children’s and young people’s rights are upheld.
