Supporting Child Protection Professionals and Beyond
If your job involves working with care-experienced children and young people or you and your team work with families and adults in vulnerable situations, NYAS can help you to deliver the best support possible. We offer a range of commissionable services and training courses which are designed to support, safeguard and empower care experienced young people and adults.
We are specialists in providing independent advocacy and legal services across England and Wales. We listen to what children and young people want and care about what they say. When the government or society fails to hear them or respect their rights, we campaign for better outcomes.
If NYAS is your designated service provider or you know what service you need and would like to refer a child, young person or adult in your care please complete our online referral form.
