“Social work provision for asylum-seeking children in hotels is insufficient, say charities” COMMUNITYCARE

“Imogen Chapman, senior social worker at Love 146, urged local authorities to “stand up against the actions of the Home Office” and reject its process of placing children in hotels. This is a failing system, which goes against the most basic of protections guaranteed in child protection acts, and is placing children at increased risk of abuse, exploitation and trafficking…These are children and must be seen as children first. Hotels aren’t homes, and every child deserves a home to be safe in.”
