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


Baobab Talks

Exploring alternatives to the UK asylum system for young people – book now for July 3

As the General Elections are approaching, an urgent task waiting for the next government is to rebuild an asylum system that works for children and young people — that protects their interests first, safeguards them, and nurtures them to flourish in British society.

Just in time for the elections, our next Baobab Talk will be on July 3 2024 and will feature an exception panel of speakers who will present their ideas on how to improve the UK asylum system for young people.

Book your place now!

We are pleased to announce that David Neal (former Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration), Lauren Starkey (Independant Social Worker, Shpresa Programme), Frances Trevena (Supervising Lawyer at the Refugee Law Initiative) and Prof. Cornelius Catona (Helen Bamber Foundation) will share the floor to explore where improvements could and should be made.
