SummaryIndependent Visitors befriend Looked After Children to provide them with fun visits out once/month and provide them with an independent adult to talk to.
Often, NYAS volunteers are the only adult in a child’s life who is not paid to spend time with them. NYAS Independent Visitors act as role models to children and young people – providing them with positive opportunities and helping to create positive futures for them.
NYAS recruits volunteers from all backgrounds who give their time to this programme. NYAS asks that each volunteer spends time with their young person on a monthly basis and gives a minimum commitment of two years to the programme. The programme creates very meaningful relationships and is very rewarding for both the volunteer and child or young person.
