We provide a range of services which help 15-25 year olds seeking safety in the UK to get into, stay in and do well in education.
We recruit and train community volunteers to provide bespoke 1:1 educational mentoring - a blend of EAL tutoring and wellbeing support - to young people in their area across London, Oxford and Birmingham. We are also exploring the possibility of expanding our mentoring programme to Manchester and the East of England.
Across London, we provide personalised advice, guidance and psychosocial support to young people who are NEET (Not in Employment, Education or Training) or facing significant barriers to educational progression.
We facilitate, through a national helpline and face-to-face sessions in London, advice and support for young people who have the academic potential to attend university but who face challenges in doing so because of practical and immigration status-related barriers.
Our new three year strategy has introduced an innovation stream, enabling us to respond with dynamism and flexibility to the evolving needs of the young people we serve. The focus of this stream in 2018-19 is a values-based leadership course for young refugees and asylum seekers.
Alongside our direct work with young people, we undertake research and consultancy and provide training, ensuring that the voices of young refugees and asylum seekers are heard by the policy- and decision-makers who affect their lives.
