The Children’s Section is responsible for delivering services to separated children seeking asylum and refugee children. The Section also leads on raising the profile of our clients and advocates on their behalf. Supporting this work, the Section also promotes good practice to statutory and voluntary agencies and seeks to influence government to national level.
Children’s Advisers work on a team basis to cover all services flexibly, for example surgeries, casework, outreach work and our advice line.
