This report looks at the available data on the extent and impact of destitution for young refugees and migrants and, based on findings from our services, sets out the devastating impact it has on children, young people and families. Having fled danger in their country of birth, they have to expose themselves to potential danger and harm in this country because they are excluded from support and adequate accommodation. They remain hidden from view and have to survive with minimal resources.
