The purpose of this post is to provide administrative support to project therapists and service manager for an effective service delivery to separated children who have often been through traumatic experiences including being trafficked, witnessing horrific events, and as a result of upheaval in their country of origin and along their journey to survival.

The Therapeutic Services team provides one to one therapeutic intervention and group therapy through a team of psychotherapists and caseworkers to individual asylum seekers and refugees with mental well being needs.  The team has adapted the Therapeutic Services model of working in addressing the identified needs of clients within a holistic approach.

 The British Red Cross, Refugee Council and UpRising, has recently been awarded funding from the People’s Postcode Lottery to expand our Refugee Support work with separated children. Our new project, “Surviving to Thriving’’ will holistically support 500 young people in Birmingham, Leeds and Luton, over the next two years.  We will engage with our service users and use their experience and evidence to inform our development and delivery of training for 400 professionals on issues critical to supporting young asylum seekers.
