This week, we are delighted to launch into the world a brand new online resource that we’ve been working on during these difficult Covid days: the young asylum guide.
The new website – inspired by our online asylum navigation board, launched during the first lockdown – is a guide to the main stages of the asylum process that young people (unaccompanied children) seeking asylum in the UK go through. The resource explains the major stages of the legal and support process, with innovative problem cards that “flip over” to reveal more information and actions people can take.
We’ve loved producing this resource in partnership with Gina Antchandie of Croydon Council. Her huge amount of work on this project and attention to detail has been invaluable – and she’s been a ray of sunshine to work with!
The website was developed by the brilliant Red Ink. The artwork used throughout the website was made by young people who are currently navigating the asylum process, in a workshop facilitated by the artist Tim Sanders.
How the guide works
The guide explains the key stages of the UK asylum process that young people will go through.
You can click on Overview for an understanding of the whole process from start to finish. You can move onto a specific stage by clicking on it.
Read the information about the stage of the asylum process.
Look at the “problem cards” underneath. Read the problem, then think about and discuss what you might be able to do in that situation. Flip over the problem card to read about possible actions to help. Click on READ MORE to get all the information.
The asylum process can be very difficult, but there is a lot of help available.
Go the People who can help page and turn over the cards to find out more.
SUPPORT OUR WORK
On reaching the UK, people face a hostile environment. Without help, many will be forcibly sent back to the wars, persecution and misery they have fled.
