Not Just A Temporary Fix

This report explores the process, system and concept of identifying a ‘durable solution’ for separated children in England, looking at what exists in practice and what should improve.

Based on existing guidance and research, this project has taken the definition of ‘durable solution’ to mean: ‘’A long-term and sustainable solution which ensures that the separated child
is able to develop into adulthood in an environment which will meet his or her needs as well as fulfil his or her rights, not putting the child at risk of persecution or harm whilst also taking into account their views in accordance with their capacity’.
