Advice relating to minors returning from Syria

This document has been produced by a range of colleagues in order to supplement the original advice for local authorities, “Safeguarding Children returning to the UK from Syria”, that was produced in 2017. Since this was published, a small number of British children have left Syria and returned to the UK via third countries. This advice has been created in light of the experiences practitioners have had in supporting minors returning from Syria. Views of practitioners at a local level have been intrinsic in the creation of this document.

The intention of this advice is to act as a collection of practical considerations to help local authorities prepare for the arrival of a minor returning from Syria, and assist the practitioner in identifying how best the minor could be supported in the immediate and longer term.
