Salusbury World

Charity Partner

Queen’s Park Book Festival is proud to be partnering with our local charity for refugee and migrant families for the festival.

About Salusbury World

We work with refugee and migrant families helping children, young people and parents to realise their rights and potential.We’re the only school-based refugee charity in the UK so we are uniquely placed to work with whole families. Our work is effective because our services are joined up to provide integrated educational, social and practical support.

Vision

Asylum from conflict and persecution is a universal human right. So are education, family life, adequate living standards and social participation. All children have rights to play and recreation, as well as the active promotion of their full growth and development.

We envisage a future in which schools and communities across the UK work together to protect, fulfil and foster respect for these rights, ensuring that all migrants are welcomed wholeheartedly and empowered to settle, thrive and participate in all areas of society.

Mission

Our mission is to support and empower refugee and migrant children, young people and families to overcome obstacles, realise their rights and potential and participate fully in society.
