Information on legal issues affecting young refugees and migrants
Every child has the right to compulsory education, and the right to be in school. Immigration status does not affect this. The guidance on this page was put together as part of the ‘Belonging’ schools toolkit, designed by Coram Life Education and young people from Coram’s Young Citizens programme.
When parents separate they both still have certain responsibilities regarding their children. This includes ensuring that their children have somewhere to live and providing for them financially.
Seeking Support provides comprehensive, practical advice to professionals on how to work with unaccompanied or separated refugee and migrant children and young people
There are an estimated 120,000 undocumented children living in the UK. This page contains resources for learning the law that relates to these children.
A coalition of government and NGO organisations produced this good practice guidance to assist front line social workers in conducting age assessments of unaccompanied children seeking asylum in the UK.
This guidance note, by Coram Children’s Legal Centre and the NRPF Network, looks at the duties and responsibilities of local authorities to support children in care with access to legal advice.
