Free Training Session: Youth Legal Training - Know your rights (Community Care Rights)

  • Canada Water Library 21 Surrey Quays Road SE16 7AR (map)

Do you know your community care rights?

As part of our Young Londoner's Project we are working with Youth Legal to offer legal rights training to young people and their families. The aim is to empower them to better understand their situation, rights and when they can/should access specialist advice and support.

This training is primarily targeted at young people (old enough to benefit from the training themselves) and their families, but is also open to the parents of younger children.

This includes young people and families with leave to remain with a no recourse to public funds condition, young people and families with refused asylum claims appeal rights exhausted and undocumented young people and families. It also includes young people with disabilities and their families and young carers.

Anyone under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult - if they are not accompanied by a responsible adult they will unfortunately have to be turned away as we do not have the capacity to supervise them.

16-18 year olds can attend independently but they must be registered in advance as we have a limited number of spaces for unaccompanied under 18s.

This training will cover topics including:

-Housing support for people with No Recourse to Public Funds

-Disability Support

-Support for carers

Please come to Room 5 & 6 of the Canada Water Library at 2pm.

Tea and Coffee will be available. Travel expenses can be refunded, please bring your receipt on the day.
