Supporting unaccompanied children and young people seeking sanctuary in Greater Manchester 

Young refugees

What is HOPE?

Hope works with unaccompanied asylum seeking Children (UASC) within the Greater Manchester area.

We aim to support young people with individual needs on the basis of empowering them to develop independent skills and be able to navigate the local culture and systems within Greater Manchester.

Who can access HOPE?

Young people aged 13 - 21 years and up to the age of 25 (if still in education) who are unaccompanied and seeking asylum.

What support does HOPE provide?

We provide support ranging from individual needs to main issues around asylum/immigration and integration and cohesion:

  • One-to-one support: advocacy, advice and college
  • Information and self-advocacy: support in independent living
  • Life skills: training, CV's and interview preparation, integration and awareness raising
  • Participation: group work and 'All 4 One' group
  • Immigration/asylum support: finding a solicitor, rights and entitlements and age assessments

How do I access the HOPE service?

Referrals can be made by professionals, carers or by self-referral.
