Velos Youth is a non-profit organisation that provides safe spaces for displaced unaccompanied children and young people on the move.

We connect young people with services they can use and run a varied program of activities.

Our diverse team focuses on wellbeing, social development and informal education to support unaccompanied children and young people to re-start their lives where they are, or safely and legally reach an alternative destination that is in their better interests.

“Velos is the reason my family reunification was successful, because they made sure I had a lawyer and social worker. They guided me every step of the way.”
