My View Children's Therapy - Refugee Council

My View Children’s Therapy

Therapeutic service for unaccompanied children

SERVICE UPDATE: LUTON – Please note that due to organisational changes, therapeutic support for young people in Luton is now provided by the Work and Wellbeing for Refugee Integration (WW4RI) project. To refer a young person, please contact admin.ww4ri@refugeecouncil.org.uk.

UPDATE 09/07/2020: All My View waiting lists (London (Croydon and Stratford), Leeds and Birmingham) are open for new referrals.

 My View is a children’s therapy service, a safe, confidential place for young people to get well-being support. That can be through talking or doing creative work individually or through group therapeutic support.

“I did not have any hope when I first came here. I was thinking to harm myself but you have supported me and gave me education to myself. I feel confidence and you have given me so much. Thank you so much!”
