Factsheets for LAC and care leavers

‘Become’, previously known as ‘The Who Cares Trust’ have created factsheets for LAC and care leavers which they have also translated into Arabic, Kurdish, Pashto, Tigrinya, and Vietnamese which may be a useful resource for our UASC carers/children’s social workers.

Radicalisation and Extremism Factsheet

This factsheet has been produced by tri.x as a resource for professionals working with children, young people and families and gives a brief overview on the Prevent duty, the Channel Panel and the importance of referrals.

Cultural Identity 

Suppose a child comes to live with you who has a different ethnicity from you. In that case, it is essential that you value and respect the child's cultural identity, heritage and past experiences and be willing to learn.

This could be researching on specific needs such as hair care and skin products or supporting them to find links with their local community and helping them meet their religious needs.

The child's social worker and your own supervising social worker will be able to support and guide you.
