Working with Children and Young People Subject to Immigration Control: Guidelines for Best Practice

Research output: Book/ReportOther report


These guidelines on working with children and young people subject to immigration control represent best practice in the context of United Kingdom immigration control based on contemporary knowledge and relevant national, international and regional norms, standards and principles. The guidelines are aimed principally at those who play a role in decisions that are taken in relation to children’s immigration status, most notably the Immigration and Nationality Directorate (IND)
of the Home Office1 (including interviewing officers, caseworkers, policy officers and presenting officers) and in the Immigration Appellate Authority (IAA). The guidelines will also be of use to others responsible for the provision of non-legal services to children and young people subject o immigration control, and to immigration practitioners who work with such children and represent their interests.
