Student Research With a Positive Impact
NYAS works with students across England and Wales who explore issues affecting care-experienced young people as part of their studies.
Some of these research opportunities are facilitated by Interchange. This is a registered charity managed by the University of Liverpool, connecting voluntary sector organisations with students in higher education. Interchange provides access to research projects, including undergraduate research opportunities.
We also run a research programme with students from Manchester Metropolitan University. The high-quality research produced as a result of these partnerships benefits both the student and the charity.
Student Research Project Results
NYAS has been fortunate enough to offer undergraduate research opportunities to several students. You can find all of their original research, including their findings, below. We have grouped each research project by the theme or issue they were exploring.
