Independent Youth Living

**Unaccompanied children are amongst the most vulnerable in the country. They have often lived through years of trauma and arrive profoundly affected by what they have witnessed.

Many face great uncertainty and are surviving in an unfamiliar environment and culture, with strange habits, rules and language.

They find themselves alone and in need of care, protection, and support to deal with the effects of severe trauma and mental health issues. We focus on the child’s needs in relation to their health, disability, education, legal requirements, religious beliefs, racial origin, culture and linguistic background.

We work with multi agencies and experts to provide input to support, empower them to achieve, provide continuity of care and safe accommodation to promote stability.
