With the introduction of the Immigration Act 2016, it is more vital than ever that every local authority is aware of their duties to Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children who become care leavers.
Peggy Etiebet and Jenny Oscroft, joint heads of the Cornerstone Health and Social Care Team, are delivering a training session which provide delegates with a comprehensive overview of these issues. After attending this course delegates will:
- Know about the accommodation subsistence and other support for adults without immigration status leaving local authority care(formally cared for under section 20 Children Act 1989);
- Understand the impact of the Immigration Act 2016 on the above;
- Know when the LA has to do a HR Assessment in respect of care leavers without immigration status;
- Know how to do a HR human assessments in relation to care leavers without immigration status.
Peggy and Jenny have significant experience in advising LAs on their obligations to care leavers and routinely act in judicial review challenges to care plan provision for care leavers. They are also highly experienced across the full spectrum of health and social care issues facing your local authority.
