Description

The Children’s Society in Leeds offers a range of support services to refugee, asylum seeking and migrant young people and their families who face significant harm, inequality and neglect. It helps young people to access their rights and entitlements and promote their integration, through the HEARTS service [Help Each Asylum seeker and Refugee To Settle].

The HEARTS offers a youth programme, an advocacy service and mentoring:

Youth programme

The youth programme offers a range of skills sessions aimed at young migrants aged aged 14 to 21 years old to connect with others and build social networks, we offer a range of weekly social and creative activities in partnership with local partners [such as First Floor in Leeds, a creative arts organisation] who promote young people’s confidence and self-esteem.

The youth programme also provides orientation and prevention which is aimed at reducing the risks of exploitation and risk taking behaviour for young people who often lack awareness of their rights and entitlements and lack parental guidance [in particular unaccompanied asylum seeking young people]. The aim of the programme is to ensure that following arrival in their new city, young people are empowered to become full members of their new community.

The programme covers the key skills and areas of knowledge that young people need to develop in order to sustain an independent and safe life, such as:

The programme can be delivered as part of a group or within mentoring. The choice of themes to be covered and the length of the sessions is determined by the level of awareness and understanding of the young people.

Advocacy service

A dedicated advocate/keyworker provides support to young people aged 14 to 21 who may be unfairly denied support or experience difficulties as a result of their immigration circumstances. Young people in need of support may find themselves in the following situations:

The advocate/keyworker delivering the service is registered with the Office of Immigration Services Commissioner [OISC] Level 1 and is able to directly assist with some basic immigration work.

The role of the advocate/keyworker is to:

Mentoring

The aim is to match young people with a volunteer mentor [taking into account the young person’s interests, gender and cultural preferences] to offer practical help with areas that they identify as important to them. This could include:

Each mentor will be able to support up to two young people at a time for a period of 9 to 12 months.
