An unaccompanied child with a guardian usually has more than one service provider assisting them, for example the social service (social worker), a placement provider (reception in families, small housing units or residential reception facilities), the health services and an education provider.
As a guardian, you have to know all the actors involved. Networking with them and with other relevant stakeholders will help you to identify more professionals who may be useful for managing the relationship with the child and responding to their needs. Sharing the individual care plan, while keeping the privacy of the child in mind, and sharing information about the expectations and needs of the child, will contribute to good decision-making and to acting in the best interest of the child.
The position, responsibilities and tasks of the guardian are not always clear to others. It is therefore important to clarify your position in your contact with them: who are you and what is your role?
