NYAS is the leading provider of advocacy and associated service across the UK. NYAS shares the opinion that every child or young person experiencing care should have the same chance to live happy, healthy and rewarding lives as their peers.
If you are looking for a rewarding role with an organisation that makes a difference to young people’s lives, we want to hear from you.
We are recruiting Self-Employed advocates within Devon and the surrounding areas of Somerset, Dorset and Cornwall, to provide independent and confidential advocacy on behalf of NYAS to children, young people and adults in a variety of settings such as children’s homes, schools, secure units etc.
Your role will enable them to ensure their voices are heard within decision-making processes that effect their lives. You will do this by listening to what they want and by informing them of their rights to get their wishes and feeling heard.
To be considered, you must hold a relevant qualification, and have significant experience of direct work with children, young people or adults in a related setting. You need to also have a reasonable standard of IT competence and be willing to use Microsoft 365.
NYAS operates robust safe procedures to ensure the protection of the children, young people and adults at risk we work with. To comply with NYAS’s Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy, candidates will be subject to an enhanced DBS check, references and a Digital Risk Assessment.
