I am a youth caseworker and I assist young refugees and 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 young refugees since 2003 and I co-founded Young Roots in 2004. I was Chair of Trustees from 2004-2012 and worked on our projects in the UK, Lebanon, Nepal and Egypt. From 2013-2015, I was Bridging London Project Manager, responsible for overseeing our service supporting young asylum seekers and refugees in the London boroughs of Barnet and Croydon.
