1:1 Young Refugee Support and Advocacy

We offer specialist support, working intensively with a small group of five young refugees who have been identified as having additional support needs. They may have experienced severe trauma and/or have significant difficulties in their life.

Our 1:1 work combines advocacy and mental health support, delivered in partnership with other professionals with a joined up approach, to address issues such as PTSD and complex, delayed or failed asylum cases.

We have supported young people to access support through appropriate mental health services and other specialist support services.
There has been significant demand for this service and regrettably due to our limited capacity we have not been able to provide support to all that need it. We hope to expand this service in the future, to meet the huge need for specialist support around mental health and advocacy for young people through the asylum process.
