YoungMinds Welcome

YoungMinds Welcome

Our project to support the mental health needs of Refugee and Asylum Seeking Children.

Project aim

To support the mental health needs of asylum seeking and refugee children.

Through YoungMinds Welcome we aim to build skills and capacity within the children's services workforce and help professionals to support the most vulnerable young people.

By engaging various workforces across East Kent and Croydon, we are working towards practical changes within local systems to promote a more trauma informed approach.

Who's it for

YoungMinds Welcome is aimed at professionals in East Kent and Croydon working within the children's workforce, children's services commissioners, foster carers and residential workers.

Project outcomes

As part of YoungMinds Welcome, we ran a series of conferences and training days for professionals who work with refugee and asylum seeking children and young people. In February and March, we delivered conferences in East Kent and Croydon.

Following on from these conferences, free training days are now running in Kent and Croydon. These training days focus on supporting the mental health needs of asylum seeking and refugee children. Our courses are booking up fast but we do still have a few spaces available for the training in Croydon on Tuesday 24 April. If you would like to book a place on this course, please email [email protected] for more details.
