LIFE FOR THE CHILDREN OF THE CALAIS ‘JUNGLE’ POST EVICTION – AN UNCERTAIN FUTURE

We have commissioned a report on the fate of the children formally living in the ‘Jungle’. We must say a big thanks to the report authors Benjamin Hunter and Rosie Pope who visited 12 French state-run accommodation centres for unaccompanied minors across France.

The report finds that the Home Office interview process has been marred with confusing misinformation and a consistent lack of information provided by the Home Office to both the accommodation centre staff and unaccompanied minors regarding their transfer to the UK.

As a result of what they see as the ‘hopelessness’ of their situation, minors are experiencing depression, mental distress, and are self-harming. Many minors are choosing to leave their accommodation centres.
