An excellent resource has been produced by Solace and Freedom from Torture on behalf of City of Sanctuary
This resource pack will help you understand the circumstances of refugees and asylum seekers’ lives and how these circumstances affect their emotional wellbeing.
It is designed to give you a real understanding of the lives of asylum seekers and refugees.
This pack will also help you understand why people flee their country and help you develop an understanding of the journeys that asylum seekers undertake, which can be, and often are, very frightening.
As people flee their countries at very different stages of life, either on their own or with others, we will look at a number of key issues which can impact on health and wellbeing.
