Migrant Children Programmes

The partnership has a Principal Social Worker, who is assisting councils on Migrant Children.  They provide expert support to Local Authorities and other partners who are working with Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking children (UASC), including organising practitioner training in key areas including Age Assessment, Trauma Training and Child Trafficking as well as coordinating a practitioners’ group.

The new National Transfer Scheme (NTS) model was announced in November 2021 by the Home Office. Participation of local authorities is currently mandated and the South East allocations are managed by our Principal Social Worker in liaison with the 19 upper tier authorities with responsibility for social care.
