"In order to treat me equally,
you may have to treat me differently"

Aims of the Project

The project aims to:

 

  • Be a “listening” service for asylum seeker and refugee children and young people living in Kingston-upon-Hull.
  • Help parents with counselling and dealing with problems relating to health, stress, bereavement, trauma and isolation.
  • Support and help cultural integration.
  • Offer support to families with complex and long term needs.
  • Offer help and support to families that would not use the usual “pathways” (e.g. GP’s) to seek the help they need.
  • Build trust and confidence with the clients we work with.
  • Act as a “bridge” to help families access other services available to them.
  • Work in partnership with other statutory and voluntary organizations (e.g. CAMHS)
  • Be culturally sensitive
  • Work closely with school to help with child/school difficulties.
