Open Arms – new programme for asylum seekers and refugees

Posted: 21st June 2022

We’re proud to have launched an important new programme, Open Arms, for young unaccompanied asylum seekers and refugees aged 13 – 21 years.

Taking place as an open session every Friday from 5 – 7pm at our HQ Ramsgate Youth Centre, it’s a safe, relaxed environment for these young people to enjoy music, art, games and make friends. Food and drink is provided and we’ll be cooking together, making music and more.

It’s FREE and no need to book – just turn up on the day.

We have a small budget to offer travel expenses and can offer support to book a bus, train or taxi if needed, tell us before or save your receipt for reimbursement.

This truly is what we’re about – supporting ALL young people, using music as a vehicle to bring people together, promote equality and find joy.

The programme is for Young Unaccompanied Asylum Seekers and Refugees aged 13 – 21 years, in the care of Kent County Council/Medway local authority or another local authority and is generously funded by NHS Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning Group.
