Abstract

This research summary provides an overview of findings from an 18-month, in-depth research project: The social functioning, emotional wellbeing and mental health of unaccompanied young people seeking asylum in the UK. The research was conducted by the Thomas Coram Research Unit, at the Institute of Education, University of London. It was commissioned and funded by the Department of Health, although the views expressed in this summary do not necessarily reflect those of the Department. The key findings from the study are presented and some of the specific implications for policy and practice for those working with unaccompanied children and young people in a range of health, social care, education, immigration and legal settings are discussed.
