Young refugees to receive support from new project in Liverpool

THE Children's Society, Liverpool Diocese, Mothers' Union and Home for Good have joined forces to support vulnerable young refugees and developed free training for professionals called Hat·tę·ḇāh, taking place at All Saints Worship Centre in Liverpool, on Friday, 24 March 2017.

Hat·tę·ḇāh is a Hebrew term which means sheltering people in their time of need and providing safety. As the global refugee crisis continues with hundreds of young refugees fleeing war, violence and persecution, some are making Merseyside their home. The vision of the initiative is to help local communities in Liverpool to be places of safety, or places of hat·tę·ḇāh, for refugee and migrant children. The project began with The Children's Society, a national charity supporting children and young people in need who experience poverty, abuse, neglect.

Mo Baldwin, the Director of Church Engagement talked about the initiative, saying:- "It started with people's outrage at the image of Alan Kurdi, the little Syrian boy washed up on the beach in Turkey, showing the tragic plight of refugees. It's an image that touched so many people's hearts and we wanted to harness this enthusiasm to make a difference. More children are fleeing their homes to escape violence, persecution or conflict than at any point since the Second World War. Many arrive traumatised, destitute and completely alone so we want to make sure they are supported as much as possible, given refuge and hope".

The awareness raising training is aimed at people who may come across refugees in their work or who might be influencers of others; this will include teachers, lawyers, medical professionals, family or youth workers and clergy. Participants will learn about the issues facing refugees in this country, improve understanding of rights and responsibilities, and find out how they can be more inclusive in their work. The training will be taking place, on Friday, 24 March 2017, All Saints Worship Centre, 55 Sheil Road, Liverpool. For more information please contact Angharad Lewis on:- 0207 841 4650.
