When an Unaccompanied Asylum-Seeking Child arrives in the United Kingdom, they are likely to have been exposed to many adverse childhood experiences.

This course is recommended for professionals working with Unaccompanied Asylum-Seeking Children in education-, health- and care-based settings.


Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children and Adverse Childhood Experiences Explained

Unaccompanied Asylum-Seeking Children (UASCs) are amongst the most vulnerable children and young people in our society. Reflecting on the journeys they may have taken allows us to start to understand more about them. As we start to understand more about their situation, the potential impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) becomes readily apparent. 

When we successfully create the link between UASCs and ACEs, we can start to consider the strategies we can employ to protect these vulnerable children and young people.
