At A Glance: Where is home when you have travelled half the world to safety? Enthum House provides a safe and sustainable home to unaccompanied asylum-seeking children aged 16-18 in the United Kingdom.
Goals: to offer young people person-centred support and positive challenges; to empower each young person by building on their resilience and the reconciliation of their trauma; to encourage and facilitate independence, self-reliance and integration into local communities and UK society as a whole.
Results: Enthum House opened in the summer of 2018, and as of February 2020 had already welcomed fourteen young people who travelled from Iran, Afghanistan, Vietnam and Eritrea, without their parents, to find sanctuary. At the end of 2019, the Home Office reported that it provided best practice in the UK in supporting refugee children.
