I am a Youth Caseworker for the Young Roots Rise Up Project. My role is to assist young unaccompanied asylum seekers in accessing appropriate and suitable housing, support from the Local Authority, legal representation, healthcare and mental health services.
I have been working with vulnerable young people, families and women with insecure immmigration status for over 6 years and continue to feel motivated to ensuring their voices are heard. I have previously worked for both migrants rights organisations and women’s rights organisations and regularly volunteer within the community.
