Unaccompanied children and parental responsibility
The Migrant children’s project at Coram Children’s Legal Centre has published a factsheet on unaccompanied children who have nobody exercising parental responsibility for them in the UK. This gives information about circumstances in which an unaccompanied child may be placed under a care order so that social services will hold parental responsibility.
