Anne Longfield responds to Written Ministerial Statement on safeguarding of unaccompanied asylum-seeking and refugee children
Response to Written Ministerial Statement on safeguarding of unaccompanied asylum-seeking and refugee children:
Anne Longfield, Children’s Commissioner for England, said:
“Earlier this year, the UK made an important commitment to unaccompanied asylum seeking children whose best interests may be to come to the UK. The Dubs amendment to the Immigration Bill is in its first stage of implementation and it will be vital that there are robust plans in place to identify and assess children from across Europe and support them when they move to the UK.
“As Children’s Commissioner I will be playing central role in this process monitoring the strategy and delivery plan and holding government to account. The best interests of children on the move in Europe will be my focus throughout and I look forward to playing my part in providing a brighter future for children who have lost so much and experienced so much instability and trauma.”
