Improving Outcomes Through Collaboration 2018 was two interactive conferences that looked at improving the journey and outcomes for unaccompanied asylum-seeking children. Using presentations from experts in their field, interactive Q&A sessions, film and animation, we explored safeguarding, mental health and the legal dynamics, and heard the child’s voice throughout.
Below you’ll find the presentations, films, animations and other material from the two days. They are presented here for use with your own teams and to share the learning across the UK.
