Liverpool City Council Mishandling of an Age Assessment for a Child asylum seeker

Dear Local Government Ombudsmen,

Can you please provide copies of any correspondence and attachments/enclosures, including emails, you hold, between yourselves and the Liverpool City Council (LCC) with regard it's recent report into LCC's mishandling of an age assessment for a child asylum
seeker.

Liverpool City Council failed to follow long-established guidance
when social workers who had no specific training assessed the age
of an unaccompanied asylum-seeking girl.

Can you please also provide a copy of any and all internal information you hold
with regards your recommendation that LCC has to or will be
undertaking a review of 10% of the UASC age assessment s undertaken
in the last year and details of what training they are planning to
provide to social workers.

Yours faithfully,
J Cassidy

Foi Officer, The Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman
