This project believes that parks are a fantastic part of British culture and heritage, and can play an important role in supporting the wellbeing and integration of refugee and asylum seekers.
Leeds has lots of green spaces and parks.
In this research we learnt about the ways in which newcomers to our towns and cities enjoy (and don’t enjoy) parks – interviewing refugees and asylum seekers in Sheffield, London and Berlin. We explored how organisations involved with supporting refugees might connect with greenspace organisations to encourage wider use and positive experiences.
