Immigration and Care Planning for Looked After Migrant Children and Care Leavers

Who is it for? 

East of England local authority social workers and social care managers who provide services to looked after children (UASCs and other separated migrant children) and care leavers. 



To provide participants with information to support effective care planning for migrant children and young people leaving care in order to assist with implementing the Department for Education's statutory guidance, Care of unaccompanied and trafficked children

To enable local authorities to implement statutory duties by undertaking human rights assessments in order to establish whether the provision of leaving care support is necessary to prevent a breach of human rights or EU treaty rights where a young person is in an excluded group.
