Children's Rights Project is designed to help migrant children,especially 13 - 19 year old unaccompanied minors,in the Coventry area.Unaccompanied minors are children who have entered the UK with no parent or guardian and who are then placed under the responsibility of Social Care.With no family support or support networks in place,these children are particularly vunerable.
The project will offer clients and their guardians support,guidance and advocacy,in addition to that of mainstream and voluntary sector organisations.We offer help in such areas as Legal,Educational,Training,Employment,Leisure,Mental Health,Befriending and Mentoring.
The support is carried out in different locations : visits to The CMRC Office,Home visits by the Caseworker,in schools,police stations,colleges and other educational settings, and working in community settings.
Each client will be given a clear individual support plan and can receive support for up to 3 years.
Eligibility to join the project :
- The child must be a migrant aged up to 19 and live in Coventry
- The individual does not have to have any particular immigration status
The project aims to support any migrant child that needs help.
The Children's Rights Worker can also act as "appropriate" adult when requested.
