Being a young refugee or asylum seeker in London can be an isolating experience. At Paiwand, we have a host of activities designed to bring young people together.Our regular programmes offer young people an opportunity to build new friendships, improve confidence, learn new skills and increase aspirations. We do this through weekly groups and one-off trips, including:

  • Weekly Girls Groups
  • Weekly Boys Groups
  • Football
  • Cricket
  • Mixed sport (running, yoga, circuit training)
  • Young leadership training
  • Life skills workshops (sexual health, nutrition, budgeting, mental wellbeing, drugs)
  • Residential trips
  • Theatre trips
  • One-off trips (climbing, bowling, museums, cinema, aquarium, Brighton and more!)
We aim to lower the risk of social isolation for young people, and support them to become engaged and happy individuals.If you are a school, college or youth organisation who would like to arrange a workshop for your group please contact We also have trainings available for staff (including mentors, social work students, educators).
