What has the Beeing Together programme been up to?

April 15th, 2024

We’ve been enjoying our Beeing Together programme that we launched at the start of this year, engaging with young people across Greater Manchester for some fun sessions.

Our programme is for young people across Greater Manchester who are seeking support and can gain new skills and experiences by coming along to our sessions. Many unaccompanied asylum seeking children have arrived in the UK without friends or family, so we provide vital provisions to help these young people.

The young people have been very busy since this programme was launched, with one highlight being an embroidery session. The young people focused on looking at the theme ‘What does home mean to you?’ with their embroidery pieces.

The young people also spent the day at the National Trust Dunham Massey park last month, volunteering with tree planting and deer feeing.

One of the young people who took part said: “I will remember this day for the rest of my life. It was an amazing day”.

Another highlight from the Beeing Together programme was the bouldering that the young people took part in.

Over the next three years we will be supporting 240 unaccompanied children who live in the 10 boroughs of Greater Manchester.

We are partnering with Greater Manchester Immigration Aid Unit for this programme, which is providing legal support for any young people who need that. The young people will be able to receive advice on the asylum process and support with campaigns on issues that affect them.

The programme is also funded by the National Lottery Community Fund. For more information on the support and services we provide for unaccompanied asylum-seeking children, please see here.
