Separated children (also known as unaccompanied minors) are children who are under the age of 18, who are outside of their country of origin, and who are separated from their legal or customary caregivers. As the majority of separated children are teenagers, they will be referred to as separated young people throughout this study. This report is based on research that was conducted in relation to the placement of separated young people in foster care and supported lodgings. It draws on the views of the young people themselves, their carers, and key stakeholders working in this field.
