Who can contact us?
If you need advice, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond to your email as soon as we can. This service provides one-off advice; we cannot take on cases.
Please note that we no longer offer telephone advice.
We will try to help anyone with a query – front line practitioners in the statutory and voluntary sectors, parents/carers, and children and young people themselves. The demand for this advice is high and there may be a delay in responding to your query. To minimise delay in providing advice, please give as many relevant details as possible in your initial email.
Before contacting us, please read the legal information above as this covers many of the common issues affecting migrant, asylum-seeking and refugee children. If you have further questions and are a child, young person or family member, you can contact us by email.
This advice is confidential. If you contact us for email advice, we will keep your details in order to follow up on your enquiry. We store some anonymised data, such as age of children and query topic, to help us to improve our service.
If you contact us by email, we may send you an email survey after you have received advice within twelve months of first contact. If you would not like to receive this, please let us know in your advice email.
