Community

We wish to create a community on these pages, to bring together all who are interested and involved in the lives and experiences of young migrants. Whether you are a young person in school, college or in work, a teacher in school, a parent or carer at home, active in the community, involved in research, or if your life is affected in any way by the issues around the lives of young migrants, this is your page.

Here we will put up links and resources and a visual record of the project, and the stories, photographs and creative work done by young migrant students and their teachers and supporters, as part of our research and activities, but this is also your space, and we wish to hear from you.

If you have a story to tell and share with others, be that in word, art work or photography, about your experience, please contact us though the form to be found at the foot of the page, and we will be in touch with you with further information.

We look forward to hearing from you.
