Our vision is to create a safe and sustainable “home” environment for unaccompanied asylum-seeking minors where the basic needs for regenerative sleep, balanced nutrition and complimentary medical care are met within a stable, wholesome and responsive community committed to reciprocal learning.

Our aim is to enable and empower each young person by building on their resilience and the reconciliation of their trauma whilst facilitating and inspiring their invaluable integration and contribution to their local communities and UK society as a whole.

Our mission is to offer hope, guidance and positive challenges through a variety of creative and technical workshops, sports, cross-cultural and language classes and therapies to suit everyone’s needs and interests to best prepare for an independent and self-reliant future.

We encourage relationship building and the bridging of cultural barriers, the participation in academic and vocational opportunities and the contribution to the sustainability of the centre by engaging in local community initiatives and support the acquisition of valuable life skills and enterprise.

We offer a comprehensive legal network to support individual’s asylum claims to ensure that the young people’s best interest and future choices will be upheld and protected. Adequate and necessary person-centred support will be offered should they be removed back to their home countries aged 18.

We are creating a model that can be replicated in communities across the UK in collaboration with local authorities, established charity organisations and community groups.
