DESCRIPTION

This half day webinar is organised by NYCI in collaboration with the Irish Refugee Council. The aim of the half day is to support youth services and voluntary clubs and groups to develop your work with young Asylum Seekers.

The Irish Refugee Council will be giving an input on the International Protection System and the legal journey that young people and their families go through, outlining some key moments in an asylum application process and explaining some of the terminology.

We will also look specifically at trauma and how the importance for trauma informed practice working with young people seeking international protection.
