Resources for supporting refugee and asylum seeking children

Young Minds has mental health and emotional wellbeing resources for young people.

They have published resources to support refugee and asylum seeking children.

Young people with asylum seeking and refugee experience have shared the key things that they need from social workers, foster carers and schools to help and support them.

This resource was made to bring the voices, experiences and lens of young people with asylum seeking and refugee experience directly to those who support them, and was extracted from a focus group discussion.

There is also a document on parent insight. Read what refugee and asylum seeking parents would like other adults to know in order to best support their children.

This insight came from the time we spent with refugee and asylum seeking parents, discussing ways in which they could support their children’s emotional well-being and mental health. During these sessions we asked the parents what they would like other adults to know in order to best support their children.

Lastly, there is a foster carers toolkit.

Video

The YoungMinds Welcome film shows the experience of an asylum seeking child, and young person, as they share their thoughts about what helped them during this difficult time in their life. You will also hear the experiences of a parent, teacher and a foster carer of asylum seeking and refugee children.

The voices and experiences in this film came directly from professionals we worked with or in our network, as well as participants on the YoungMinds Welcome training courses.
