Robins, Leanne; Rylands, Jennifer
This study explores the context, characteristics and experiences of 23 unaccompanied minor mothers (UMM) during 2003. The aim of the study was to inform both service design and service development for this population. The study was designed as a partnership between the East Coast Area Health Board, Social Work Team for Separated Children Seeking Asylum (SWSCSA, ECAHB); the Psychology Service for Refugees and Asylum Seekers, Northern Area Health Board (PSRAS, NAHB), and the client group. Ethical approval was sought and obtained from both the ECAHB and the NAHB. A number of key agencies and individuals were consulted in the development of aspects of the research.
