Refugees and those seeking asylum

by Home-Start Glasgow North Claimed

We recognise the impact for those parents, carers and children who have experienced trauma in their emotional and physical journey, now facing the further challenges of attempting to start a new life for their family.

With extensive training, staff and Peer Volunteers work alongside families who are navigating or have recently navigated the formal systems and processes. Through weekly home visits, families are helped to integrate into the local community, given support to access services like health and education and to address emotional and physical needs at home. We also connect with and signpost to others who can help; interpreters and ESOL classes, advocacy services, housing and rights organisations, for example.

As with all of our work, we can demonstrate positive impacts on mental health, isolation, relationships, connections and confidence to nurture our children.

We help volunteers and families alike to make progress, build on their skills, strengths and interests, and grow in confidence. Regularly, supported parents go into training as Peer Volunteers once their circumstances and wellbeing allow. This is a positive cycle and helps build strength and resilience in whole communities.
