Children and young people programme

The KEY Project

The Evelyn Oldfield Unit’s Knowledge Empowers You (KEY) project seeks to engage young people from asylum seeking, refugee and migrant backgrounds aged 10-18 years old through arts based and sporting activities. The intention is to enable promotion of social inclusion, access to activities that inspire and motivate young people, as well as enable gentle entry to support through building trust and comfort with support services.

KEY is a new project and we want to hear from young asylum seekers, refugees, and migrants about activities they would like access to in order to ensure what we deliver meet their needs and interests. We would love to meet with groups of young people to explore their ideas, take part in developing our promotional material, service delivery and gauge their comfort discussing wellbeing to inform how we develop and deliver workshops.  If your organisation or school has a group of young people who would be open to partaking in something like this, we would love to hear from you and discuss it further. We are more than happy to come and visit as well. The KEY project is funded by BBC Children in Need and we highly appreciate for their support.

Some of the activities that we are planning are:

Psychological wellbeing workshops

Sports activities

Music classes

Art activities

Education and career advice

Social events

English classes and homework club etc…

We are passionate to help develop the potential of young people by unleashing their strengths, creativity and confidence and we aim to make a difference to their life.

Online Training

Due to the COVID 19 pandemic the KEY project is currently delivering daily online sessions. These include ESOL classes, homework sessions, and fun sessions to combat boredom caused by young people staying at home during the pandemic.
