star this property answer text <p>Local authorities are under a statutory obligation to provide accommodation for unaccompanied children who arrive in their area. This means that they become looked after children and should be safeguarded and have their welfare promoted in the same way as any other looked after child. To help support this, the government has revised the ‘Statutory guidance on the care of unaccompanied migrant children and child victims of modern slavery’, which was published 1 November 2017: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/care-of-unaccompanied-and-trafficked-children" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/care-of-unaccompanied-and-trafficked-children</a>.</p><p>The government recognises that unaccompanied asylum seeking and refugee children can be some of the most vulnerable in our society. The government’s vision and additional commitment to caring for these children is set out in the strategy for ‘Safeguarding unaccompanied asylum seeking and refugee children’, published 1 November 2017: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/safeguarding-unaccompanied-asylum-seeking-and-refugee-children" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/safeguarding-unaccompanied-asylum-seeking-and-refugee-children</a>.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Caring for any child requires skills and dedication. Local authorities and independent fostering agencies select and prepare all foster carers for this challenging role. The Government is committed to ensuring foster carers are afforded the appropriate recognition, support and training to ensure every looked-after child receives the high-quality care they need. We have funded a range of initiatives including “Fosterline” – a helpline which provides a confidential, impartial free advice service for foster carers and potential foster carers.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, in September we commissioned the Refugee Council and ECPAT to deliver training for foster carers and support workers who are not experienced in working with unaccompanied asylum seeking or refugee children. The Government has also committed to evaluate the need for any additional training required by foster carers looking after unaccompanied children as part of our wider safeguarding strategy for unaccompanied asylum-seeking and refugee children. Further information on our safeguarding strategy can be found on the Government’s website, GOV.UK, by searching for ‘Safeguarding unaccompanied asylum-seeking and refugee children’.</p>
