NYAS provides independent representation to children who are involved in private law proceedings. NYAS operates its own legal team which includes a Panel Member solicitor and a Family Law Panel member.
NYAS recognises that every child has the right to keep in regular contact with both parents if this is in their best interests. Through our network of Family Contact Centres, we have continually sought to work with families and uphold the rights of the child by providing a safe and supportive environment for contact to take place. NYAS provides Family Contact Centres in Birkenhead and Liverpool to allow parents who are separated from their children to rebuild their relationship as a family.
