We have worked for many years with unaccompanied asylum seeking children from Afghanistan, Eritrea, Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan and Vietnam.
Many of these young people arrive in a sorrowful state having had horrendous journeys and life experiences. Often frightened and bewildered, we are able to reassure by using our creativity and basic knowledge of some of the languages to welcome them and continue to communicate with them.
We have become experienced in supporting these young people and understanding the processes involved towards settling them into life in the U.K. We offer support with facilitating and attending solicitor’s appointments, Home Office appointments, Health screening appointments and appointments with education and/or other institutions to support integration whilst respecting personal identity and culture.
We establish support networks for the young people to enable them to share language and culture with other young people from their home country and offer and support achievement through leisure.
