Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children
We know that you have been separated from families, either in your Homeland or during transit to the UK. We also understand that you may be extremely distressed and frightened as a result of the overwhelming experience you have been through. Our well-trained Foster Carer will help you start settling into your new life in the UK and help you to overcome your traumatic past.
Meet Sayed, our family support/participation worker
Sayed, our support worker focuses on helping asylum seeking children to settle in their new families and supports them in their dealings with the Home Office. He is multilingual and is able to speak to the majority of the agency’s asylum-seeking young people in the language that they understand.
He draws from his personal experience of being fostered while seeking asylum in this country and this brings an additional and positive dimension to his relationships with the children and young people.
What if I have a problem or I am sad?
If you are worried, frightened or sad you must tell someone. There are lots of ways you can tell people and lots of people you can tell about what ever is bothering you.
You can tell adults you trust
