Unaccompanied asylum-seeking children fostering

When children find themselves alone in the UK they are taken into the care of the local authority. 

They could be here because they have:

  • Been trafficked
  • Been separated from their family on arrival due to an immigration issue
  • Fled their homeland due to war or fear of persecution
