NYAS provide high quality visiting Advocacy services to children and young people living in local authority and private children’s homes, residential schools and secure units across England.

Our visiting Advocacy service helps protect young people by providing an independent regular visitor to their home. Through visiting on a regular basis our advocates build relationships with the young people supporting and enabling them to share their views, wishes and feelings, resolve issues and empower them to be involved in decisions that affect their lives. The advocate will also provide written visit reports if required.

All our visiting advocates are accredited independent advocacy trained, DBS checked, experienced in working with young people and possess good interpersonal skills. Our advocates are also skilled at working with those young people who have a disability and are unable to communicate.
