At YCC we support vulnerable and disadvantaged children and young people, and their families.
It goes without saying that refugees can be extremely vulnerable and disadvantaged when they arrive in the UK.
Refugees experience conditions of vulnerability, marginalisation, and poverty, in addition to high stress of displacement, which can seriously affect health and wellbeing, in particular for women, children, and older people.
That’s why YCC are looking to take action quickly. We have been in touch with the DWP, to support their programme and offer work to people arriving from Ukraine and Afghanistan. Once employed by us, we will be able to mentor, train, support and develop any individuals, as we do with all of our staff.
We have many available roles currently vacant within our charity and would be proud if any refugee wished to apply for any of them.
We will keep you posted of any positive outcomes.
