What's Your Story?
We want to hear from you about your experiences whilst living in care.
- Have you got some advice to share?
- Do you have some top tips on living independently?
Whatever your experience, we want to give you the opportunity to share your story in your own way with others facing a similar situation.
By sharing your experience of life in care, you can provide guidance, hope and advice to other care experiened young people. Your story could inspire them to find support themselves, or to use their voice to improve their situation.

Living in Care
Living in care should be a positive experience. You should be kept safe, cared for and given opportunities to reach your full potential. Learn more about life in care, what this means, and what support is available for you.
There are various youth participation opportunities at NYAS. They enable you to have your voice heard, be actively involved in decision making, and create measurable, positive change across our services, campaigns and wider policy.
