Children in care - what to expect

Immigration status

Social workers and personal advisors also work with young people around their immigration status if they are not British citizens. Young people can have the following immigration statuses:

  • Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR)/ Humanitarian Protection (HP)
  • Discretionary Leave to Remain (DLR)
  • Asylum Pending (waiting for an answer from Home Office)
  • Out of Time applicants (turned in application too late to file an asylum claim)
  • exhausted all appeals (no longer eligible for support and likely to be deported)
