Year 10 Envision Project

The Year 10 Envision Group have begun their project in support of Hope Charities, they have pitched their ideas to the Headteacher, delivered an assembly, visited every form group with information and created a piece of artwork. This week they have informed their peers about the project, why they have chosen it and what they plan to do next. They have got off to an excellent start and we look forward to seeing what they can achieve as a team this year. Below is an article they have written to explain why they chose the project that they did.

Empire Windrush

Empire Windrush is best remembered today for bringing one of the first large groups of post-war West Indian immigrants to the United Kingdom, carrying 1027 passengers and two stowaways on a voyage from Jamaica to London in 1948. 

70 years on and some of our most loved and well-established members of society are still being questioned on their stay here and are constantly threatened with moving back to Caribbean countries. 70 years of being in the UK and now they are being disrespectfully questioned.

However, it has now become a disastrous global dilemma where millions of refugees seek asylum and are being prejudiced against just because of their unjust situations which cannot be put down to them. The number of people day to day, who even in the workplace, mention that refugees should "go back to their own countries" is astounding. An actual quote I've heard. BUT WHO CAN BLAME THEM?! Daily, millions are misinformed on what refugees actually are.

Religion. Gender. Sexual inclination. Political inclination.  Simple reasons that should not cause lives like yours and mine to be unbearable.

These are real statistics.

Hope provides cash grants of £20 per week for up to 6 months for people left destitute while challenging flawed refusals of asylum. People are usually staying in Hope Housing, with friends or family, or with other charities.

Hope projects have 10 houses in Birmingham and the Black Country that are home to 29 people left homeless and destitute while challenging flawed refusals of asylum. They usually house people for up to 6 months. Hope pays all fuel bills, council tax, and water rates.

Wellbeing is central to the Hope approach. Their housing support staff and volunteers make sure that people are safe and able to make friends and connections in their own neighbourhoods. They also run a women’s group and a peer support group for people fighting flawed refusals of asylum.

Hope projects make sure that everyone in our housing has high-quality legal advice. Where we cannot get legal aid, Hope’s own legal expert provides advice and representation.

With asylum grants on the rise, Hope Projects supports the destitute and underprivileged every step of the way and could do better with your aid.
