Advocacy Services and Additional Support
When NYAS began offering support to young people in the 1970s, we only offered advocacy services. Today, we are one of the largest providers of child and family advocacy across England and Wales, but we have also expanded our service offering.
NYAS offers statutory services like advocacy and Independent Visitor programmes alongside legal services in private family matters, support for care leavers, an advocacy helpline, and location-specific projects. You can find the right support for you below.

NYAS offers similar services across England and Wales. However, some services differ, and some are unique to Wales. If you are looking to access any of NYAS’ services across Wales, you’ll find all the information you need right here.
As well as working to support young people, NYAS provides support for families. Our family advocacy service includes parent advocacy, and we also offer supervised contact centre visitation to help families rebuild relationships.
