Refugee experiences

Moving to a new country is a challenge for most people. Making new friends and understanding how things work can be difficult and stressful. For refugees and asylum seekers this process is even harder, often because they have very little money and hardly any support.

These videos, share the experience of both refugees and people who work with them. We hope that by sharing how others have overcome difficulties we can make life a bit easier for those going through similar issues.

We would like to translate these videos into the many different langauges our clients speak. If you think you could help and wouldn't mind having your voice recorded please do contact us using the details at the bottom of this page.
