Our current research includes work for Refugee Integration Yorkshire and Humber

Recent work includes ESOL for refugees: a toolkit for commissioners and practitioners, as well as work on Welcoming Young Refugees, which is profiled below.

How can we do better at helping young refugees settle in and adapt to life in the UK?

We're consulting young refugees and their foster carers and social workers, trying to really understand the experience of arriving in a new country alone, at a young age; and the experience of foster carers as they meet a young person for the first time, someone who may speak no English, be confused, frightened and traumatised.

To find out more about young refugees' perceptions and experiences, our researcher worked intensively with a small number of young people across Yorkshire and Humber. You can watch our researcher talking about the research on Vimeo

Young people's digital stories

Part of this work included a group of young people producing digital stories, in which they tell us something they want to share in their own words, using their own images and technique: watch the young people's videos

'Someone who smiles, that's all you need' - research report

Our research outlines priorities from the young refugees’ perspective, and has great illustrations by one of the young people who participated in this project.
