Everyone is equal and deserves the right to be treated as such, with dignity, respect and the right to exercise personal choice.
Our Campus Project is a housing support service for UASC (unaccompanied asylum-seeking children) aged 16+. who have fled their own countries for fear of persecution, and are seeking safety in Glasgow.
Typically, residents will have experienced past and current traumas, including bereavement, separation, torture and hazardous journeys to their destinations as well as potentially being victims of trafficking/people smuggling and continued exploitation.
An important objective of the project is that the people we support will leave the service with, regardless of what their futures hold, a lasting impression of feeling safe, considered and cared for.
We aim to improve our residents’ confidence; we support them to develop practical ,social and emotional skills and coping mechanisms that will benefit them now and, in their futures. We also invite them play active roles in our local community.
Our staff team have an understanding, a commitment and a genuine interest in our residents’ overall wellbeing.
We are holistic and non-judgemental in our approaches and attitudes; we are willing to broaden our personal knowledge and experience of different cultures and customs. We look to engage and learn from our project residents, our colleagues and other agencies.
The project is a newly built block of modern flats that provides an excellent living, working and social environment for both project residents and staff. We are located in the Springburn area of North Glasgow and are well served by a variety of public transport links.
