Policy and Influencing

Our policy, influencing and lobbying work includes submitting evidence to parliamentary inquiries, campaigning for change on local and national legislation and writing and sharing research and briefings about specific issues.

NYAS aim to influence the Government’s law and policies, in Westminster, the Welsh Assembly and at a local council level so that they are improved for children and young people in care.

Our policy recommendations are backed by sound research and include the views of the children and young people we work with. We provide key recommendations to government proposals and provide policy solutions.
