Factsheets for Young People Claiming Asylum in Wales

The Children’s Legal Centre Wales and Welsh Government have been working together to produce a series of factsheets for Young People who find themselves in Wales seeking asylum, without family to care for them. The factsheets cover details of the legal rights and entitlements these young people can access in Wales, information about being looked after and what this means, and an explanation of how the UK immigration system works and how it applies to them. The factsheets have been translated into 9 different languages reflecting the ethnic backgrounds of the children and young people most commonly travelling to Wales on their own, looking for safety.
