Children | Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children (UASC)

A key area of work for the WMSMP is supporting regional working in regards to Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children often referred to as UASC for short. This work relates to the number of UASC migration strands, such as the Calais transfers under Dublin III or the Children transferred under the Dubs Amendment. It is also sometimes necessary for UASC to be transferred from one local authority to another under what is known as the National Transfer Scheme.
