Abstract

University hosting Refugee Week event Thursday 5 June 2014 Honour-based violence, forced marriage and female genital mutilation are among the topics that will come under discussion at a free event hosted by the University of Salford during Refugee Week. The conference, titled ‘Hidden Issues Affecting Young People’, is part of ‘Our Home, Our Salford’ – a pioneering initiative that brings together the grass-roots community activist group Salford Forum for Refugees and Asylum Seekers initiative, social business enterprise Visible Outcomes and the University’s Social Work Directorate. Gabi Hesk, Social Work Lecturer, said: “The aim of Our Home, Our Salford is simple – to include all and educate our local community and beyond in the hope of enabling the action of breaking the ‘silence’, which some of our most vulnerable young people have to live with on a daily basis.”
