Are you a young person who has arrived in this country without an adult? Do you have no relatives or a legal guardian who can care for you in this country? If so, you may well be a 'young unaccompanied asylum seeker'. We will have a responsibility to find out if you are safe and to work out what you need. If necessary we will look after you and make sure you are properly cared for.

We have specialist workers within the Children in Care Service who have expert knowledge and skills about the issues which face young people when they come to this country. They also provide advice and support to other teams within the department.
