Asylum Seekers and Refugees

We have just started a new group called Ignite which is just for Unaccompanied Asylum Seekers aged 16 to 18 but also for young people aged 16 to 18 that have recently arrived in Bradford with their family who are either Asylum Seekers or Refugees. We meet 3 times each week on Mondays at 6pm, Tuesdays at 5pm and Friday at 5pm.

The project aims to provide a safe place especially for these young people to spend time together. To improve their knowledge and understanding of the UK and specifically their local area so that they feel they belong and can participate. We also plan to establish and build relationships with young people from the local area so that together the young people develop friendships outside of their existing small circle.
