Could you care for a young asylum seeker?


We need carers for young unaccompanied asylum seekers aged 16 and over who will shortly be arriving in Edinburgh from countries including Syria, Eritrea, Iraq and The Sudan.

They have been forced to leave their homes to escape the trauma of war, torture and poverty. Many have undertaken long and hazardous journeys by sea and land on their own. They have experienced the double trauma of separation from their homeland, culture and environment and from the adults in their family who cared for them.

We need carers to provide safe and secure homes for them in Edinburgh where they can live as part of a family, rebuild their lives and have the opportunity to be happy and fulfilled.
