Support for Internet Explorer

It looks like you’re using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser. This is now considered ‘end-of-life’, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it because it uses outdated technology. This means that it will no longer receive important security updates and previous bugs will not be fixed.

This means that the risk and cost are placed on service providers to develop twice for modern browsers and again for Internet Explorer. As free, modern alternatives are available for most platforms it is difficult to justify spending public money on further development.

Please see the Withdrawal of support for Internet Explorer notice from NHS Digital for more information and guidance.

Family Refugee Support Project (FRSP)

Face-to-face activities have been suspended. Existing clients only should contact your counsellor on the number you have.

Supports refugees and people seeking asylum to improve their mental health through therapy, to achieve settlement and independence in the UK.
We work with families and individuals.

What We Do

Counselling with Horticulture
  • Weekly 1-2-1 therapy with a counsellor specialising in trauma work, in a garden or allotment space.
  • Each family is allocated their own piece of land to plan, plant, tend and harvest. Tools and practical gardening support is provided by our horticulturist.
  • Counsellors work with the horticulturist and interpreters to support clients in using their growing spaces as a medium for therapy, and for recreation and involvement of family members.
  • Support is available in helping clients to access mainstream services.
  • Regular reviews.

Practical Support 

FRSP helps client and ex-client families with practical needs – housing, immigration, social welfare benefits, education, training, employment and the management of finances.

The support offered is tailored to the needs of the individual and their family. At times people need advocacy and intensive support, but our aim is to empower clients, and where possible clients will be supported to access other services and to find their
own solutions to problems they are faced with.
