The project has been co-designed with key third sector partners supporting transnational families, migrants and carers, with whom we are working with closely in each country:

Reading Community Learning Centre, Reading, UK who have over 20 years of experience in delivering services to support traditionally ‘hard-to-reach’ refugee and migrant women to be skilled, confident, and active citizens who are able to contribute to society by addressing barriers to learning, integration and employment.  

Reading Refugee Support Group, Reading, UK which has been providing support to refugees and asylum seekers for 26 years. RRSG delivers a number of key services including improving the quality of life experienced by refugees and asylum seekers by providing direct support, advice and assistance and maximising the resources available to support refugees and asylum seekers.

As well as working directly with young people, The Children’s Society develops resources and deliver training to other professionals who work with children – from young carers to those at risk of being exploited, abused, neglected.
