Refugee Youth Service supports displaced unaccompanied children and young people to re-start and re-build their lives where they are, or safely and legally reach an alternative destination that is in their better interests.
We are dedicated to bringing immediate and lasting change to the lives of unaccompanied children and young adults on the move in Europe.
We provide young people with safe spaces that faciliate access to a range of specialist and basic services, delivered by trained professionals. These are spaces in which to relax and participate in creative activities, organised sports and learning opportunities.
A diverse group of people from different backgrounds, united and motivated to make a long lasting impact on the lives of children who are unaccompanied and displaced. Social workers, cultural mediators and youth workers are core to our work, with all team members sharing a passion for improving the futures of children and young people on the move.
Delivered in partnership with Velos Youth, a safe space and integration service is offered to unaccompanied youth, transitioning to adulthood.
Launched in 2017, and operated by ECPAT France since October 2021, a mobile safer space provides a place to connect with and support unaccompanied minors in northern France.
