ISWS Ltd specialise in working with unaccompanied asylum-seeking children. Our vision is of a world where separated migrant children receive high quality, expert assessments and support from the moment they arrive in the UK. We recognise that Local Authorities are under pressure throughout CYPS, and understand how complicated it can be to navigate an immigration and asylum system alongside Looked After Children statutory responsibilities. Having worked at Central and Local Government level, as well as front line practitioners in the field, we are experts in supporting professionals and agencies to employ best practice standards, using up to date case law, legislation, research and policy.
