'We all know what is happening in Syria and there is something to cry about every day. I've been kayaking and horse-riding with Salusbury World in the summers and I loved having the chance to do things I'd always dreamed of doing. The summer activities helped me make so many new friends.'
Refugee children & families in London were disproportionately disadvantaged by the pandemic. 85% live in flats with no outside space and 80% reported struggling with online learning because of difficulties with equipment/data/space/caring responsibilities/understanding of expectations. 70% reported feeling anxious about the future. Over 80% said their lives had shrunk & they had only been outside to go shopping and that their parents worried about them going further afield.
We will run programmes for refugee & migrant children and young people aged 5-18 throughout school holidays for a year. These programmes will offer a variety of physical, creative, therapeutic and outdoor activities aimed at restoring social relationships, emotional resilience and wellbeing
