When asylum children arrive in the UK, they may have lost their homes, schools, friends, and family. Some children may have witnessed horrific events, spending months hiding and sadly, some children will have been tortured. For many asylum children, mixing with other children (school or playgroup) can make a qualitative improvement in their well-being.
Many asylum seekers will require an interpreter for a consultation; please remember it is not acceptable to use children as an interpreter for other family members and some children may need their own interpreter.
