The transition to adulthood for young people and care leavers can be made difficult by the medley of services, legislative frameworks and the fact that many care leavers are expected to make that transition at the age of 18. For obvious reasons, the transition to adulthood is often particularly difficult for unaccompanied asylum seeking children.
In this free 1 hour webinar, Ciara Bartlam of the GCN Housing team and Vijay Jagadesham of the GCN Immigration and Public Law teams share their views on how to ensure a smooth transition to adulthood for young people and care leavers, especially those seeking asylum.
Ciara and Vijay will cover the inter-related issues of age assessment challenges, discretionary leave and leaving care.
