Velos Youth is a non-profit organisation that provides safe spaces for displaced unaccompanied children and young people (aged 16-21) on the move.
We provide basic services such as access to food and showers, and facilitate access to state-run services including protection, asylum, accommodation and education; protecting and advocating for this vulnerable groups rights.
Within our spaces a varied program of activities, centred around wellbeing, social development and informal education is offered, fostering feelings of belonging, self-worth and community.
Ultimately, through a holistic approach to the individual’s wellbeing we 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.
We rely on donations from organisations and individuals to deliver these services to our users.
