With an increase in Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children (UASCs) in Suffolk, at SRS we are providing more focused work with young refugees. We have appointed a Youth Coordinator and are working closely with other agencies to ensure joined-up services for this highly vulnerable group.
- We provide advice and advocacy to young people through our regular drop-in services
- We run a weekly Homework Group for refugees and asylum seekers aged 11-19 years old for help with English, maths, science and IT
- We run a Conversation Group for refugees and asylum seekers aged 16-19 to encourage young people to participate in discussions around current topics, and increase their confidence in spoken English
We are also looking for one-day-a-week volunteering opportunities suitable for under-18 year old refugees and asylum seekers – click here for more details. If you can help or would like more info on any of the above, please contact Cathy: firstname.lastname@example.org
