This text offers an insight into the experiences of young refugees and asylum-seekers in England, who arrive alone or without their usual carer. The study is based on interviews carried out with 129 young separated refugees, as well as 125 professionals working with them. This is the first detailed qualitative study of its kind in England and presents the views of young people in their own words. Focusing on the needs of young separated refugees in the areas of social services, education, health, immigration, social integration and accommodation, this report highlights gaps in service provision and areas of good practice. It also puts forward a series of detailed recommendations on meeting the needs of young separated refugees, both at local and national level. This report should be of interest to practitioners and policy-makers alike, who are working to support young separated refugees.
