Situation

As the influx of families have been reported widely both by governmental statistics and the media, displaced families including asylum seekers, refugees, and forced migration have been on the rise. An integral part of living in Britain and an issue which has been presented to be a pivotal part of their adaptation, has been integration, especially for children. This includes the biggest challenge faced by society and the educational system: the personal development of the children in question.

Solution

The project seeks to eliminate barriers in attaining knowledge, experience and opportunities for children of displaced families by creating a bespoke programme of cultural and educational activities to integrate these children into British society. This tailored programmes, conducted within term holidays and with selected mentors from these communities seeks to alleviate pressure from families and the educational system by enhancing displaced children with greater understanding of Britain.
