Baobab Centre for Young Survivors in Exile

The Baobab Centre is a non‑residential therapeutic community that offers holistic support to young survivors of human rights abuses seeking refuge in the UK.

At Baobab we work with young survivors of abuse and help them regain their voice so they can create hope and rebuild their lives in safety in the UK.

Often their stories aren’t easy to tell but through psychotherapy, community events and group activities they learn to own their narrative and construct new pathways for their future. Hear from our community members what Baobab means to them.

“Baobab is like a tunnel. Outside the tunnel you are exposed to the elements. Going through the tunnel shapes your life and gives you hope as you approach the light”
