Fostering Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children
Course Description

In-House Certification

4-5 hours


Young people arriving in the UK unaccompanied by a responsible adult and seeking asylum from political, religious or other forms of persecution from a small but significant part of the looked after children population. The needs and circumstances of these young people are complex. Welcoming an unaccompanied asylum-seeking young person into a foster family is also complex – full of hope but with many sources of misunderstanding and tension. Most of these young people will have limited understanding of fostering, the nature and meaning of family life in the UK or of the routines, opportunities, expectations and rules of family and community life. For the foster family themselves, they are likely to be welcoming a young person whom they do not know and to have little sense of their background, their origins or recent experiences. This course explores and addresses some of the challenges that both the young person and the foster family may experience throughout the process of seeking asylum and settling into this new situation.
