Millions of unaccompanied refugee children are currently on the move worldwide. Many have suffered persecution, violence and war in their home countries. Those who make it to a European country have to face the complex challenges of asylum claims, cultural integration and often Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, without the help of their parents.

Enthum House was inspired by the work that its founders carried out volunteering, campaigning and fundraising for unaccompanied minors in the Calais Jungle. It offers a safe and supportive home for up to seven unaccompanied asylum-seeking children in East Sussex aged 16-18, with care from staff 24 hours a day.

Enthum House offers a programme of life skills, technical workshops and a mentoring programme, as well as a tailored therapeutic integration programme responding to the complex mental health needs of its residents.

It has worked with local authorities and commissioning partnerships to develop this service, and works in close partnership with local authority social workers and healthcare professionals.

Enthum House works to place young people into local schools and colleges as soon as possible, and offers intensive English language tutoring and study support.

SDB has supported the feasibility, setup and training phase of Enthum House and was delighted to see it open its doors to residents in summer 2018.
