Age Disputed Children and Children in Detention
The Age Dispute project works with children who are assessed to be over 18 years of age. The consequence of this is that they cannot access the correct support from social services and are treated as adults by the asylum system, meaning they are often placed in detention centres.
If you want to refer a young person to the Age Dispute Project please email the team on Age.Disputes@refugeecouncil.org.uk
