As part of our Seeking Refuge event, we heard from Sarah Blossom from Solace.
Solace is a mental health charity that works solely with refugees and asylum seekers.
Sarah talked about Solace’s work, some of the common experiences that can have an impact on the mental health of refugees and asylum seekers and some of the ways we can help people that we are supporting.
You can find out more about Solace and their work on their website www.solace-uk.org.uk as well as volunteering opportunities and how to make a referral.
Solace are currently looking for new premises, Ideally, they need a combination of small rooms suitable for therapy, as well as office space but we would consider any type or combination of rooms. If you know of premises which may be available, short or long term get in touch with Kathryn Ashworth on 0113 487 8361.
