Guidance Note to fill the Inter-Agency Working Group on Unaccompanied and Separated Children (IAWG-UASC) Registration Form

The Inter-Agency Working Group on Unaccompanied and Separated Children (UASC) has developed an inter-agency registration form package for unaccompanied and separated children (and other vulnerable children), to be used in emergencies. The package includes a rapid and extended standard registration form for recording key information relating to separated children, and the present guidance note on how to use these forms. 

This Guidance Note is aimed at supporting field/social workers to complete the agreed inter-agency registration form for unaccompanied and separated children and should be read together with the form, before starting to register children. It should be used as part of the training for field/social workers on techniques for interviewing children in emergency contexts. The extended registration form follows a similar content but collects more complete information to support the full case management process. Both these forms can be used as they are or contextualized.
