There has been a rise in the number of unaccompanied asylum seeking children entering the UK alone in recent years, which has subsequently had an impact on social services. With the conflict of child care and immigration law, the support that this group of young people are entitled has often been in dispute, leading to the development of policy and legislation (Hollingdon Judgement 2003 and Local Authority Circular 2003 13). There are varied reasons why young people leave their countries of origin and seek asylum in the UK, reasons for which are often within the realms war and persecution. Social workers are dealing with extremely complex and challenging positions in providing support to unaccompanied asylum seeking children, ensuring their needs are met within the statutory requirements, in a time of much political debate and negativity of immigration and asylum, as well as within the constraints of immigration law. This research proposal aims to explore the experiences and views of social workers using a qualitative methodology. It involves the recruitment of approximately ten to fifteen social workers (who have at least one years’ experience working with unaccompanied children), within specific children’s asylum teams, in the south of England. The use of semi structured interviews to gather information, using a phenomenological interpretivist approach, will gain in depth and rich accounts of the views and experiences of social workers. There is a lack of literature and research into unaccompanied asylum seeking children, particularly with regard to the issues of silence and trust. The object of this research is to inform social work practice, within the arena of unaccompanied asylum seeking children.
