Asylum Welcome/Venda Club
Asylum Welcome tackles suffering and isolation among asylum seekers, refugees and detainees who have fled persecution and danger in their own countries and seek refuge in Oxford and Oxfordshire.
Children who arrive in the UK ‘unaccompanied’ (without a parent or guardian) are confused, homesick and traumatised by the journey. They lack the ability to present their case to the authorities or to meet basic
needs without help. They must navigate adolescence in a foreign culture without good adult role models.
Asylum Welcome prioritises care for unaccompanied child asylum seekers and refugees because of the many risks to their welfare.
Advice and casework is available for young asylum seekers and refugees from 13 up to the age of 23 years old. The youth club is for unaccompanied children aged 15-21 years old.
