Apart from language, there are other barriers to accessing therapy for people who have experienced extreme trauma and who have come from cultures and backgrounds so different from the majority population in the UK. The western concepts of counselling and psychotherapy are alien to many British born people, and even more so to families seeking asylum from different continents. 

Family Refugee Support Project works with families therapeutically using the medium of horticulture in protected, safe, outdoor spaces, applying a wraparound model of support to help them regain their strength and find some peace in the middle of distressing, complex and difficult circumstances, often outside of their control.

The profile of client families has changed along with government policy, seeing people seeking asylum in the UK being dispersed to Liverpool from different countries. Many have experienced complex and diverse traumas but with similar and devastating impacts on themselves and their family relationships.
