The Scottish Guardianship Service works with children and young people who arrive in Scotland unaccompanied and separated from their families. The service supports unaccompanied asylum seeking and trafficked children and young people. This is a report of the findings of a formative evaluation undertaken of the service over a three year period starting at the time when it was established in 2010. The research found that Guardians support the young people by helping them to navigate the immigration and welfare processes, feel supported and empowered throughout the asylum process and assist them to access the help they need when they need it and help them make informed decisions about their future.
