Message to Afghan young people
We are concerned by the news from Afghanistan and want to let all young people and friends know that we are thinking about you at this difficult time. Our Refugee service has always worked with Afghan young people, and we will continue to offer emotional support and counselling and do what we can to be here for you.
If you have been affected by the current and ongoing situation, we are here to offer support and counselling. Call us on 020 8251 0251 and leave a message or reply to our text message and we will call you back.
About our Refugee Service
The journey you have as refugee, asylum seeker or forced migrant can be very difficult and can impact how you live on a day to day basis. Some of your feelings and thoughts might be difficult to manage. We can help you manage those feelings and thoughts. We work with a wide range of issues, including trauma, loss, self-harm, suicide, anxiety, isolation and sleep problems.
Our counselling service provides confidential support in Croydon to refugees, asylum seekers and forced migrants who are aged between 11 - 25.
Clients can request an interpreter.
