Investing Hope, Shaping Futures

Our vision is a world where forced migrants are welcomed, safe, and have hope to rebuild their lives for a better future.

We believe each young person has a worth uncovering, talents worth discovering and a life worth living to their fullest of potential, no matter their past or their present circumstances. We enable young people 16+ in age who are seeking asylum, some of whom have been victims of trafficking, to achieve this positive future through providing specialist supported accommodation and holistic development training.

Our Model

Our model is based on Maslow Hierarchy of Needs. We believe that no one is limited by their past experiences or their present challenges. Our model seeks to inspire hope in each young person to achieve the potential that is in them to become positive and empowered individuals. Baca has developed an individualised holistic approach to empower young people, taking into account each young person’s uniqueness. Through our support, we aim to support young people to achieve positive outcomes in their physical and emotional wellbeing, social engagement, personal safety and education, employment or training.
