Independent Age Assessment



Independent Age Assessment

We generally carry out independent age assessments in London and the South East of England.  Other areas of the UK and Europe may be considered, but please get in touch first to discuss your client's requirements. We are often able to arrange both social workers to conduct an age assessment depending on the needs of the particular case.

Human Rights Reports

We have experience in providing Human Rights reports in relation to immigration and repatriation cases, particularly around Right to Family Life, settlement in the UK and the impact of forced repatriation on children who have been in the UK for some considerable time.  

Expert Witness Reports

We are able to consider providing Expert Witness Reports for Tribunal or High Court cases, particularly in relation to unaccompanied asylum seeking children and/or age assessments.
