Local Offer description

The NYAS service is available to any child or young person with special educational needs or disabilities who are undergoing a transition from a statement to an EHCP, or a review of that plan.

It is also available for children and young people undergoing a carer's assessment.

We provide a free, independent and confidential advocacy service, helping children and young people to understand their rights and to have a voice.
