As a result of a successful collaboration between NYAS young people and Edge Hill University’s IT master’s students, an app has been developed for young people eligible for advocacy. This is the first advocacy app which has been developed specifically for young people we all support. We wanted to improve the ways in which young people could make direct contact with NYAS and we hope that the availability of the NYAS advocacy app will make it easier for young people to do so.
Young people will benefit by having information and accessibility at their fingertips. We will be monitoring both the number of downloads as well as the ways in which young people contact us for advice and support. The information will have relevance for professionals who work with children and young people. It also provides a link to the NYAS young person’s website, which contains further information for young people.
