Calling for Youth Welfare Officers in all UK Asylum Accommodation
Young adult asylum seekers in the UK often face unique and complex challenges to their mental health and wellbeing, with many having survived unimaginable experiences within their countries of origin, and/or during their long and treacherous journeys to reach this country. But once here, their journey is far from over.
We’re calling for the Home Office to urgently introduce Youth Welfare Officers in all asylum accommodation to support this vulnerable group.
