Ofsted good practice example showing how Warwickshire County Council helps unaccompanied young people seeking asylum.
This example describes how a strongly child-centred service has been developed in response to the high levels of unaccompanied young people seeking asylum in Warwickshire. Excellent management and a strong corporate parenting ethos have enabled the provision of high-quality accommodation placements with experienced and well-informed foster carers and in closely supported semi-independent accommodation. A strong emphasis on supported learning ensures good educational outcomes. Comprehensive practical and emotional support includes when young people’s appeal rights are exhausted.
