Terry, Javad and Stuart

Urgent support for young man to stay in UK

Javad is a young orphaned autistic man, who came to the UK from Iran. Since learning about Javad’s case, Hastings Online Times has supported his wish to stay in the UK with Terry and Stuart Alexander, who three years ago took him into their home and hearts. Having had the threat of deportation hanging over his head for so long, Javad now wants to make another application to the Home Office to be allowed to stay in this country. With this aim and the help of his supporters, Javad is preparing to travel to Liverpool to do this on 22 May and he urgently needs your active and loud support. HOT’s Zelly Restorick writes.

The Hastings Refugee Buddy Project

A refugee who arrived in the UK in the 1970s has recently founded a Buddy project for the Syrian families arriving in Hastings through the Government’s Syrian Resettlement Project (SRP). A team of Buddies is now working closely with the council SRP caseworker. Rossana Leal’s inspiration comes from her own experience as a refugee child and she tells us about why it is a project so close to her heart.

Terry and Javad

Request for help for Javad

A few months ago, HOT reported on Javad’s case (see links below) – a young autistic man from Iran who is seeking safe asylum here in the UK. He’s lived here since his early teenage years and now has a home with two kind and caring local people, Terry and Stuart Alexander, who care for him very much and want him to be able to stay in this country. Your letters of  support are a much-needed contribution to Javad’s case. HOT’s Zelly Restorick writes.
