Seeking Support: a guide to the rights and entitlements of separated children outlines the rights of refugee and migrant children in England, and provides advice to professionals on how to support young people in accessing those rights.

- youth workers

- organisation staff
- foster carers
- residential and hostel workers
- health workers – including outreach health workers
