Uniting A Community Through Mentoring

Young refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants have often experienced trauma, war, separation from home and relatives, and often arrive in this country unaccompanied after travelling through several other countries over many months.

These experiences make them more vulnerable to academic underachievement, social exclusion, gang and criminal activities, radicalisation, mental health and emotional struggles.

Our team of committed volunteer mentors act as positive role-models for young refugees living in NW London. Our strategy is focused on working with local volunteers to empower young people to define and make positive steps to reach their own goals. We currently have three streams of mentoring support:

  • Schools: mentors meet in school settings and provide academic mentoring
  • Community: mentors focus on integration, wellbeing and adjusting to UK life
  • Employability: mentors provide practical careers guidance and motivation

Become a mentor and make a big difference to the life of a young refugee or asylum seeker. Contact mentoring@paiwand.com for more information.
