Unaccompanied Asylum-Seeking Children (UASC)

Unaccompanied Asylum-Seeking Children (UASC) have often suffered considerable trauma and adverse childhood experiences and require additional support to make the best of educational opportunities.

WVS ensures that this cohort of young people are given the opportunity to overcome their barriers to learning.

For young people in academic year 11 or below

Unaccompanied asylum seeking children, who are age confirmed as Y11 or under are eligible for statutory schooling after they arrive in the UK, even whilst their asylum claims are being processed by the Home Office. WVS helps to support the process of finding suitable education provisions and additional resources to help with language acquisition, engagement with education and pastoral support.
