Kent Cares Town - Asylum Information

If you are under 18 and enter the United Kingdom by yourself to seek asylum, you will become the responsibility of a local authority. You have the right to an assessment of your needs under the Children Act 1989.

An age assessment may also be carried out if there is uncertainty about how old you are and you do not have documents to prove your age. If this happens, you will be offered an independent visitor, who has had training and understands your needs, to support you.
