Advice on safeguarding children returning to the UK from Syria

The Department for Education and the Home Office have produced guidance on safeguarding British children who have travelled to Syria and are now returning to the UK. Having lived in a war zone, these children are likely to have been exposed to terrorism and extremist ideology, and witnessed incidents that will have impacted their mental and emotional development. These children need targeted support to help their reintegration into their families, schools and local communities. The guidance provides local authorities with advice on how to manage cases involving British children who return to England from Syria, and the centrally funded support available to help safeguard them.
