Between July 2000 and February 2001, Save the Children carried out a study funded on the situation of young separated refugee children in England. Researchers spoke to 125 young asylum-seekers and refugees who have been separated from their parents or usual carers. They also spoke to 125 professionals working with these young people, to identify the constraints on and opportunities for the services provided to them. This study reveals what life is like for young separated refugees and makes a number of recommendations for action to improve their situation.
