Supporting Asylum Seeking And Refugee Children training

Home Office figures show that there were 5,242 applications in 2022 from unaccompanied asylum seeking children in the UK.

Lone asylum seeking children are more likely to have experienced higher exposure to war combat, trauma and torture than those who arrived in the country with the adults responsible for them.

The difficulties ensuing from years of fleeing their home communities because of war, persecution or organised violence are multifaceted and complex.

This course explains these issues and provides some examples of how school staff can help support these children and young people.
