This free event marks the launch of Breaking the Chains, a partnership project dedicated to improving outcomes for Albanian children and young people seeking asylum in the UK. Funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, this project works with children and young people in the asylum system, providing them with high quality casework while listening to and amplifying their voices to share our learning about how best to protect this vulnerable group.
The project also offers a chance to think strategically about the issues faced by Albanian children and young people, and to harness their energy and talent to provide peer support within and across communities.
The event is targeted at lawyers, social workers, academics, foster carers, teachers, NGOs and campaign groups working with and for Albanian children and young people, but will be useful for anyone working with children and young people in the asylum system. Come and hear from children and young people and those representing them.
