In 2012 alone around 1,100 children arrived in the UK, seeking safety from countries where the state has caused them harm or has been unable to protect them. Even in the UK, many of these children are not completely safe from harm, and many young refugees face severe challenges including isolation, homelessness or criminality.
LandAid supports the refugee community by funding a unique London charity called RefugeeYouth. In 2013 we provided a grant of £39,924 for the part-time salaries of two development workers’ involved in the charity’s projects in Harrow and Croydon. The charity aims to combat alienation and despair amongst young refugees by providing programmes for their development, inclusion and integration.
Join our charity visit on Tuesday 7 July, 6-7pm by emailing Elise Austin, Grant and Projects Officer today.
Charity visits are a great way for LandAid supporters to see first hand the fantastic work our charity partners do, and the lasting impact their generosity can have. Visits normally take 1-2 hours and are completely free to attend.
