Solihull Refugee Befriending Project

This two year project started in November 2015 with funding from the People’s Health Trust/ Health Bright CIC (www.healthbrightcic.org.uk). Building on an existing mentoring project, previously funded by the People’s Health Trust in 2012 through the Healthy Communities Programme, it aims to provide mentoring and leisure activities to asylum seekers and refugees in North Solihull and the surrounding area, with a special focus on newly arrived unaccompanied asylum seeking young people and refugee care leavers, reducing isolation and contributing to improved wellbeing. Activities include film nights, cultural evenings with music and food, women only sessions and day trips to the seaside.
