Description

This book illuminates the lives of misplaced young asylum seekers and refugees living here in Britain. It explores the reasons why they came and the safeguarding issues involved – the services they receive and the gaps and inequalities in the system as a whole. The book also outlines the injustice of long Home Office delays in the processing of applications and appeal processes, despite promises of improving the service. As it is becoming more difficult for many young people to get Leave to Remain, the impact on their lives in terms of accommodation, education and planning for the future are explored.  The book also looks at the emotional and mental health needs of young people including those with undiagnosed learning needs and difficulties. Ultimately, the book paints a graphic picture of what life is like in Britain for young people – cut off from their country of their origin and families – and how they are expected to make a new life in Britain with limited resources.

 

There are big misconceptions about refugees and asylum seekers here in Britain. Declan Henry dispels many of these myths and gives a compassionate and empathetic view of the daily struggles they face including discrimination, racism and poverty. The primary focus is on young unaccompanied children under the age of 18 but also looks at what happens to them after they reach adulthood.
