The PYF Involved Programme has been developed to support the integration of newly arrived refugee and asylum seeking young people.
We work with young people between the ages of 8-25, by actively promoting integration within the local community and celebrating diversity and difference. We want to ensure that as many young people who may be marginalised by their circumstances have the right support mechanisms in place to be able to become active, positive and involved members of the community. We support young people to become school, community and work ready, by instilling vital transferable social, emotional and life skills.
The design of our services has been informed and developed through our direct work with newly arrived young people, local authorities, schools and other specialist agencies.
Our extensive front-line experience in this area has allowed us to support local, regional and national policies and frameworks. Ensuring newly arrived young people’s voices inform national conversations and support other professionals with reflective best practice.
