A Care Outreach Trip to the Local Supermarket

This week, as an outreach activity with a young person in Kent we have taken a trip to a local supermarket where we looked at new fruits and vegetables to try as well as meat-free and dairy-free products. Many of the young people we support on outreach are orthodox Christians and fasting is an important principle of this religion. When fasting the young people do not eat meat or dairy products. This can be challenging, especially in the winter months and so being able to find tasty alternatives is very helpful and the young people often seem very pleased to find some different options. This particular session was followed by a much needed hot chocolate with dairy-free milk of course. Yum!

Referrals are being taken for Outreach support, for enquiries please email This services provides one to one support for young Asylum Seekers and Refugees, teaching them independent living and self care skills. The topics covered vary depending on the areas that the young person requires support with, thereby creating a package of outreach support that is tailored to meet individual targets and goals.
