Many young refugees and their families are forced to flee because of war, persecution and torture. Yet the treatment they receive here is often far from welcoming. Hope Young Refugees Project aims to turn this around. We support young people aged 13 to 25 years, from all over the globe who seek to rebuild their lives in Manchester. Our beneficiaries include: refugees, unaccompanied asylum seeking children, young migrants, and all other international new arrivals to the region.
We work with young people to improve their wellbeing by organising activities and group work, delivering one to one case work for more vulnerable young people, providing information and advocacy, running a regular drop in servce, creating opportunities for young people to build their own peer support; helping them to develop the life skills they need to live independently. For more information about our groups and services please contact us.
The Refugee Toolkit - an online tool, funded by the Department of Health, for all adult and children’s services practitioners, education, health and other agencies in contact with refugee and asylum seeking families, particularly those working with families affected by ill-health and disability and where there are young carers.
