I have set up and developed a new Team working with Separated Children Seeking Asylum (formerly UASC), and we have established clear and stable pathways for Social Care, Education and Health. As part of this work I have recently developed a mobile App especially for Separated Children Seeking Asylum, which will be available to other interested Local Authorities.
We currently support 31 SCSA providing a wide range of services, often in partnership with the Third Sector.
The Team has been recognised Nationally by the Home Office as a model of good practice.
Recently I jointly delivered a Keynote speech with the DCS on the development of the model at a national conference in Milton Keynes
I delivered savings of £200k in year 1 of the scheme, plus I was successful in securing £93k of grant funding to further develop services.
