A meeting to Discuss the Health and Welfare of Young Asylum Seekers

We will be showing our short film ‘Asylum’ (20mins); introducing the book ‘Asylum Seeking Children’; briefly summarising the findings of research conducted in Afghanistan and discussing the current situation facing young refugees.

 Guest speaker – Ken Livingstone

Venue Camden Town Hall

Judd Street London WC1H 9JE

Date - Thursday 21st October 2010 - 7pm to 8.30pm approx

We aim to highlight the plight of refugee and asylum seeking youth who come to London. These young people are keen to enter education, learn English and work hard, but often they are denied the opportunity because of the system. They get labelled as adults when they are not and then detained in adult facilities and denied the education and support they need.

'Asylum' - Asylum is a short film dedicated to the children of Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran and other areas of human conflict. Asylum seeking young people are enabled to tell their own painful stories through dramatic reconstructions, art and music. This is not a performance, it is a communication and we show how we can work together to a positive future. Asylum is a non-profit charitable production.

Attendance is free of charge but please RSVP to   or complete form below  if you wish to register for this event.
