Fostering Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking and Refugee Children

Training courses for foster carers and Social Workers

Under international law, the UK has a duty to offer asylum to people who flee their own countries because of a well founded fear of persecution. Children in these families are usually very vulnerable and have experienced the most traumatic of times in their home countries.

Caring for these children be challenging, not only in terms of cultural differences, but working with a young persons isolation and trauma, which at times can be exasperated by the immigration structures and processes.

This course covers some of the main issues facing the young people and their carers, who are living in the UK today.

The course focuses on trafficking and the issues faced by trafficked children and young people.

This 1 day course meets the requirements of the Training, Support and Development Standards for foster care
