SERVICES

Our  children centre  and holiday play Scheme is a warm, inviting, friendly place to be. We provide exciting activities for children to enjoy and encourage a desire to try new experiences through our well-planned interesting provision.

The main aims of the play centre and holiday scheme are to:
·         Give children and young people aged 5-16 yrs. a safe, stimulating and welcoming space to call their own
·         Encourage children and young people to use their imagination and explore their own creativity
·         Give children and young people an opportunity to explore their ideas and talk about issues that affect them
·         Lower the risk of children and young people becoming victims or crime or getting involved in crime
·         Give children and young people sharing a commonality of experience, i.e. inadequate housing, a place to socialise

Support Sessions for Refugee and Asylum in and out of Detention

 

Refugees and asylum seekers face a number of challenges in the UK. The asylum process is difficult to navigate and the right help and advice can be difficult to find.  Understanding the challenges faced by refugees, asylum seekers and forced migrants calls us to respond with meaningful solutions.

 

We offer practical assistance to those we accompany, responding to the individual’s needs, whether they find themselves destitute or detained under immigration rules. Detainees need practical help with sense of belonging,  communication: securing referrals to specialist services for their health and keeping in touch with family and friends.
