NNLS supports RTI

The Refugee Trauma Initiative (RTI) draws on the core team’s extensive experience of working with refugees and others whose lives have been traumatised by migration, political conflict and torture.

We have been asked to extend our highly skilled team to address the needs of many more people. As the majority of the refugees in Northern Greece speak Arabic, we would like to appoint an Arabic-speaking therapist, costing £14,000 for 6 months.

In the face of growing despair, powerless and boredom, it has been important to extend our work to running groups in which people feel they are doing something active to improve their lives. RTI is facilitating the setting up of knitting groups, which are proving highly popular, productive and cathartic. We plan to extend this to gardening, music making groups and other activity-based sessions for men. Setting up a knitting group for 40 women, training facilitators and supplying wool to each woman in their weekly group for 6 months, costs £6000.

The project will be carried out under the auspices of Prism the Gift Fund (registered charity No. 1099682). If you would like to contribute by cheque or charity cheque, it should be made out to Prism the Gift Fund (please write RTI on the back) and sent to:
