Report: Navigating the system – advice provision for young refugees and migrants

‘Every child matters even if they are someone subject to immigration control’ 

Prompted by concerns raised through our advice and casework that many services for young refugees and migrants in England were inadequate, unavailable or facing an uncertain future, Coram Children’s Legal Centre undertook a review of the level and quality of advice and representation currently provided in England.

As well as referring to evidence identified in a literature review, ‘Navigating the System: Advice provision for young refugees and migrants’ draws on findings from a survey conducted with 41 NGOs, charities and law firms, together with interviews of 26 professionals working with this group across England. It was also informed by cases studies from the work undertaken by the Migrant Children’s Project over the past two years
