Launching ‘Welcome to Leeds’ – 3 short films made by young refugees for young refugees
As part of the child friendly ambition, Leeds City Council and The Children’s Society worked with young people to hear their voices and share their ideas about what is important for young people to hear in their first days in Leeds.
This partnership resulted in 3 short films for newly arrived young asylum seekers in Leeds, made in English, Arabic, and Vietnamese.
