Young refugees publish ideas for change
A group of young refugees in Leeds (ST4R) have published a booklet that they hope will improve life for young refugees in this country. Young people involved in the project tell us why they created the booklet and what they hope to achieve.
ST4R group is about bringing young people from different backgrounds together. We meet every fortnight and campaign about different things we want to change…Young people know what it’s like to be young so we are the best people to say what we want to change. It’s beneficial to us and other people. It helps improve our communication and speaking skills and makes us feel comfortable in ourselves. It’s also doing our part. You can’t stand on the side-lines and do nothing, especially when it’s about something you’ve been through yourself.
