Baobab Centre for Young Survivors in Exile – Surviving violence, creating hope, rebuilding lives


About us

The Baobab Centre is a non-residential therapeutic community that supports young asylum seekers and refugees who have experienced child and adolescent specific human rights abuses and have sought asylum in the UK as unaccompanied minors.

We provide holistic support with individual and group psychotherapy, social casework support and psychosocial community activities. We see the young people for as long as they wish and need to be seen. We fight for rehabilitation and justice for all young people seeking refuge in the UK.
