What is in advocate?

Advocate means to speak, write or stand up for someone.

NYAS have advocates who help children and young people. They can give you advice and will stick up for you and help you try to get your rights. They can be like having your own champion because they are there just for you.

If you want an advocate your social worker can ring them for you or you can contact them yourself.  You can find out more about getting an advocate on the NYAS website.
