NEWS – Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of unaccompanied asylum seeking refugee children in England – Guidance Update.

The Department for Education (DfE) has published a policy paper setting out the government’s commitments to safeguard and promote the welfare of unaccompanied asylum seeking refugee children in England. The new strategy includes: updated guidance for councils on caring for unaccompanied migrant children and child victims of modern slavery; specialist training for 1,000 foster carers and support workers to improve their skills and confidence in caring for unaccompanied child migrants; commissioning research on the effectiveness of existing support for unaccompanied children and families reunited under the Dublin Regulation and whether more help is needed. An annex outlines the mechanisms for safeguarding unaccompanied children in the devolved administrations. A summary of responses received along with the government’s response following consultation on the guidance has also been published.

Teresa Scarlet, Director, Chrysalis Residential Family Assessment Centre

As we are all used to just getting emails either asking for work or criticising I thought I would break the mould and let you know that I am soooooo impressed with this system – at last a system where we can find everything we need to do our work more effectively without having to ring the world and his wife just to get a form!! I am a happy manager today as I now feel we are catching up with other professional agencies. Thank you.

RC, Children's Home Manager, Children's Home, South East

Thank you for all the Reg 44 information we bought from you. It has been really useful and saved me hours of time and the template (and the content of the report following my visit, of course!) has been commented on favourably by an OFSTED inspector!  I suggested to someone I worked with to get your Reg 45 and they are very pleased!!

R Meadows, Independent Visitor, Independent Consultant

Rezume have been working with our Children’s division for several years, hosting and providing legislative updates to policy. When we were looking for a host for the Adult division, Rezume was the obvious solution. We were able to design a portal with the Rezume team that enables our staff to efficiently access and download out Policies and forms. Rezume send out update emails when we update policy, and have worked with us on improvements such as individualised access levels, passwords and security.

The team at Rezume are responsive, innovative and always available to assist corporately or with staff enquiries.

Victoria O'Meara, Head of Quality, CareTech Community Services

We are still awaiting Ofsted registration, but thanks to you and Rezume we are ready for them!
