Research project

Towards a trauma-informed asylum process and services

Project overview

By using participatory methodology, this project will co-produce with unaccompanied asylum-seeking young people (UASYP) practice guidance/resources/toolkit aimed at advancing a trauma-informed asylum process and social service to address the ‘hostile’ UK asylum system. We build on findings from our recent ESRC project (LOHST - Lives On Hold, our Stories Told; both Iusmen and Kreppner are Co-Is) where we worked throughout the last two years with UASYP as peer-researchers to explore the impact of delays caused by Covid-19 on UASYP’s access to services, education, and wellbeing.
