What is specialist education and wellbeing support?
We offer drop-in and appointment based support sessions (London only) to provide:
- Advice and guidance on educational rights and entitlements relating to young peoples' immigration status
- Longer-term advocacy and support work with young people facing barriers to access, remaining and progressing in education
- Support to create and implement educational action plans
- Psycho-social support for those who are struggling to remain in education due to mental health difficulties
Here's what this programme achieved in 2018-19:
Who is specialist education and wellbeing support for?
- Young asylum seekers, refugees and survivors of trafficking who are under the age of 24
- Those at key stages of transition in life which pose challenges to accessing, remaining or progressing in education
- Those who are NEET (not in education, employment or training)
- For face to face support work, you must live in London and be willing to travel for appointments
- Those living outside of London (but must be in the UK), we can offer educational support, advice and guidance through email or over the phone.
