What is the NYAS Campaigns Youth Advisory Group?
By listening to the voices and experiences of care experienced young people, NYAS is able to deliver youth led campaigns. This ensures that our campaigns address the things that matter most to children and young people in care across England and Wales.
What does the NYAS Campaigns Youth Advisory Group do?
Our Campaigns Youth Advisory Group works directly with our Policy and Research team to have a positive impact on our campaigns and policy changes. The young people involved in our Campaigns Youth Advisory Group use their knowledge and experience of the care system to help us influence politicians and decision makers.
The members of our Campaigns Youth Advisory Group have a huge impact on NYAS’ campaigns, and influence key stakeholders in policy reform – from local councils to parliament, our young people are steering positive change for people in care, and adults in vulnerable situations.
We have the right to demand change and we have the right to make change. The Campaigns Advisory Group is a community where we can use our past to make change in the present for the future.
