Our refugee actors are passionate about changing the conversation about Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children (UASC). They want to make sure those younger than them experience the Care, Education and Legal systems in the most positive way whilst they come of age in extreme circumstances. We believe that discussions around UASC care needs need to happen with UASC themselves. We offer creative trainings and workshops to social workers, social work students, key workers, teachers, mentors, journalists and other professionals working with UASC and refugee communities. The workshops are informative and dynamic and aim to provoke a deeper understanding of UASC, a group whose experiences challenge our understanding of ‘childhood’.
Here are what some of our professional participants have said:
‘Having Syed and Tewodros share their experience has been invaluable’
‘Refugees and asylum seekers are people too. They have dreams and aspirations that should be encouraged. This workshop will help me deal with refugees better’
‘It has been great to reflect on our practice and gain such valuable insight into their experiences’
‘I learnt the difference between a social worker and a good social worker’
‘I found it very profound, helpful and an insight into my students’ world. This will help me professionally to develop a more holistic and inclusive teaching practice’
‘The involvement of Syed made the workshop refreshing, reflective, empowering and provocative’
