Family Refugee Support Project Safeguarding Statement:
“Safeguarding is Everyone’s business – Family Refugee Support Project is committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of all children and adults, and expects all trustees, staff and volunteers to share this commitment.”
You can read our full safeguarding policy here.
The core Family Refugee Support Project work offers refugee and asylum seeking families therapeutic counselling and gardening through a wraparound support model to enable clients to regain their strength and deal with past trauma and difficulties.
Clients receive 1-2-1 counselling and during their time with the core project they have a piece of land to cultivate and tend. We provide this service in our therapy garden and allotment sites which are safe and calm places to enable the healing process.
Families are able to stay in the service from between 1-3 years, dependent on their needs and how they make use of the service.
Clients can be referred to us via primary care services, other mental health or community services or self-referral. Click the button below to make a referral.
We also work with individual refugees and people seeking asylum through our Spinning World service commissioned through Ashton, Wigan & Leigh CCG, which offers therapeutic counselling. We also work with PC24 directly to offer urgent short-term therapy to newly arrived people seeking asylum in Merseyside.
