First among the principles underpinning the Children Act 1989 is that the welfare of the child is of primacy concern. To this end, local authorities have a duty to provide services to support children deemed ‘in need’. However, despite this, they struggle to deliver services appropriately, especially in deprived areas. This article explores this deficit through the lens of children in asylum-seeking families who represent the extreme on the spectrum of need.
