Refugee Support Network provide a range of services which help 15-25 year olds seeking safety in the UK to get into, stay in and do well in education:
RSN recruit and train community volunteers to provide bespoke 1:1 educational mentoring – a blend of EAL tutoring and wellbeing support – to young people in their area across London, Oxford and Birmingham.
Specialist educational support:
Across London, RSN provide personalised advice, guidance and psychosocial support to young people who are NEET (Not in Employment, Education or Training) or facing significant barriers to educational progression.
Access to higher education:
RSN facilitate, through a national helpline and face-to-face sessions in London, advice and support for young people who have the academic potential to attend university but who face challenges in doing so because of practical and immigration status-related barriers.
RSN’s new three year strategy has introduced an innovation stream. The focus of this stream in 2018-19 is a values-based leadership course for young refugees and asylum seekers.
See RSN’s FAQ page on accessing university (https://www.refugeesupportnetwork.org/resources/17-university-for-asylum-seekers-and-refugees) or call their national advice line (07597583228) if you are a young person (aged 16-24), a parent, teacher, advisor, university staff member, social worker, or are dealing with this issue in any other way.
RSN’s helpline is not currently operating set hours so please leave a clear message with your name and number. The helpline messages are regularly checked and one of our team will call you back. Alternatively email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
