Supporting Refugees and Asylum Seekers

Supporting Refugees and Asylum Seekers

We work closely with local community groups supporting refugee pupils to settle well in Devon and be supported in schools to achieve their potential. We are working with Multilingua,  RSD, the Olive Tree, Open Doors and Exeter City of Sanctuary to improve the support provided to families and unaccompanied asylum seeking children. 

A refugee is someone who has been forced to flee his or her country because of persecution, war or violence. A refugee has a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group. Most likely, they cannot return home or are afraid to do so.

Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children are children under the age of 18 who having left their country due to war, violence or persecution is seeking asylum in the UK.. These children have been seperated from their family and relatives and are placed in care where they are allocated foster homes.An asylum seeker in the UK will be seeking refugee status.
