If you do one thing today – watch this film.
No child should be forced to leave their home and seek sanctuary, however children currently make up a quarter of people seeking asylum in the UK.
It is with both sadness and pride that we launch – A Place to Call Home.
This short film was produced by AFRIL’s funders the Childhood Trust and features the first hand accounts of the remarkable and inspiring children that AFRIL is currently supporting through our Rainbow Club, Foodbank Programme and Advice and Advocacy Service.
The children share in their own words what it is really like to flee your home, make a dangerous journey to another country seeking safety, and what their hopes and dreams are for the future.
Thank you to the AFRIL staff and parents who supported and empowered the children to tell their stories.
