In this response to the original report, the NSPCC addresses the state of the UK's system of care for separated children, based on their experiences working with this population. In addition, the NSPCC describes its work with the UK's Borders and Immigration Agency in developing child protection policies and procedures in immigration removal centers. The original report and the NCPCC's response are particularly applicable to those working with unaccompanied children through the United States' Department of Unaccompanied Children's Services (DUCS).
