Unaccompanied Humanitarian Minor Program

(Question No. 1319)

Ms Gambaro asked the Minister for Immigration and Citizenship, in writing, on 29 November 2012:

What transitional care arrangements are in place for Unaccompanied Humanitarian Minors exiting community detention.

Mr Brendan O'Connor: The answers to the honourable member's question is:

UHMs generally remain in community detention properties for up to four weeks following Protection visa grant, to allow settlement arrangements to be finalised. Where transitional care arrangements are required, generally in cases where a carer assessment is in progress, UHMs can be cared for under the UHM Program, administered by Life Without Barriers.
