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

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned 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 immigration practitioners who work with children and young people subject to immigration control and represent their interests. They will also assist legal practitioners in other areas of law and those providing services other than legal services to children including, but not limited to, social workers, carers, youth and support workers, teachers and the police. The guidelines aim to assist immigration practitioners and other professionals to represent the best interests of children by improving their own practice through adhering to international and domestic standards and ensuring that the UK Border Agency, tribunals and courts also do so. This is a second edition (first edition published 2012).
