Placement of Asylum-Seeking Children (UASC)
Unaccompanied asylum seeking children in the United Kingdom, often abbreviated to UASC, are children who are outside their country of origin to seek asylum in the United Kingdom. They are separated from parents and relatives and are not in the care of someone who is responsible for doing so.
We undertake to provide them with the best possible accommodation and care to ensure that their primary and long-term needs are met. Unaccompanied asylum-seeking children (UASC) will often be placed in shared accommodation or single properties depending on their preferences.
We will work closely with Social Services to ensure that access to all services such as Education, Immigration Advice and Health Education.
We aim to create an environment where they feel ‘Welcomed’ and looked after in the UK.
We provide suitable emergency accommodation which can be accessed directly at any time of the day or night where there is sufficient supervision and monitoring by Support staff to keep the child safe. Each young person is provided with a dedicated Support Worker helping them navigate all aspect of integration in the UK.
