We are grateful to Coventry City Council for their work in looking after unaccompanied asylum seeking children, including their active participation in the National Transfer Scheme (NTS).

Any offers of further placements for unaccompanied asylum seeking children will be utilised to fulfil all of our existing commitments, including under section 67 of the Immigration Act 2016 and our broader work through the NTS of ensuring a more equal allocation of the approximately 4,500 unaccompanied children already in care in the UK.
