GROW YOUR OWN FUTURE – The original Family Refugee Support Project service offers refugee and asylum seeking parents therapeutic counselling and gardening through a wraparound support model to enable clients to regain their strength, deal with past trauma and difficulties. This service is supported through grants from Lloyds Bank Foundation and the Henry Smith Charity.
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 with the project from between 1-3 years, dependent on their needs and how they make use of the service.
For all our services, clients can be referred to us via primary care services, other mental health or community services or via self-referral, from within our geographical service areas. Click the button below to make a referral.
SEEDS OF RECOVERY – We work with PC24 to offer urgent short-term therapy and support to newly arrived people seeking asylum in Merseyside. This model has also been extended via work with NHS Greater Manchester Integrated Care for people in temporary accommodation in certain parts of their operational area.
SPINNING WORLD – Outside of the City Region, we also offer long term counselling to refugees and people seeking asylum through our adult Spinning World service, commissioned through NHS Greater Manchester Integrated Care.
