Online - Coming Home to a Foreign Country
Returning to the UK/Passport country can feel like returning to a foreign country when mission workers have been working overseas for a long time. It’s even possible that their children were born overseas and may have never experienced life in the UK/Passport Country for more than a few weeks, so with a whole range of 'progressive' ideologies with a focus on identity politics to consider, it can be daunting and confusing for those 'coming home'.

How can we support parents and children to prepare for the adjustment when their 're’-entry transition comes? How much do they know from online sources, and what else do they need to know?

During this online event we'll discuss some of the key cultural changes to be mindful of, and attendees will also have the chance to hear from three different mission workers who have returned 'home' to learn about some of the challenges they faced. The event will conclude on a practical note with a clear checklist designed to help us help navigate their return.
