If you come into contact with young refugees in your work or wonder how to best support young refugees, then this training could be for you.
As the global refugee crisis continues, hundreds of young refugees fleeing war, violence and persecution are making Merseyside their home. Despite current uncertainty, our readiness to welcome, and be aware of the needs of, these young people has never been greater.
The free awareness-raising training will take place on Friday 24th March at All Saints Worship Centre, 55 Sheil Road, Liverpool, L6 3AD.
On the day topics will cover issues that young refugees can face.
• The immigration and asylum process, including issues and barriers – through the eyes of an unaccompanied asylum seeking child.
• Rights and entitlements
• How professionals can be more sensitive and aware in their work
• Organisations to contact for advice and support.
The training is aimed at people who may come across refugees in their work or who might be influencers of others; this will include both church professionals (clergy, family or youth workers, chaplains and pastoral assistants), and professionals within church communities, (teachers, lawyers and medical professionals).
