To celebrate Refugee Week we’d like to share a piece of work we recently had the opportunity to develop with a fantastic group of young people who all arrived in Glasgow as young unaccompanied Asylum Seekers. We were able to run this pilot with the support of the Gannochy Trust.
Click the link to check out Scotland Our New Home, a magazine for Glasgow’s New Arrivals. It was created by the New Young Peers Scotland; a group of young people from all over the world who have been learning together how to make Glasgow a better home for them, and for other young people. The group are supported by Ypeople, Glasgow City Health & Social Care Partnership,and Anniesland Clyde College.
Within the project the group also developed the map below, with invaluable help from Nahom at Freedom From Torture.
This project is just one of the many amazing achievements this group have made, and are continuing to do so, having just began to support a whole new group of young people who will certainly benefit from their collective skills, knowledge and experience.
We look forward to seeing what they achieve next!
