So we built a new domain with new users with the same name and details. But we can't get them to access their old profiles which we have copied across .

I tried giving them full control and made them the owner of the profile folder but it doesn't work. Only works when the user is made domain admin.

Any ideas?

I am not sure you can migrate profiles to a new domain. Each object is
tied to a security identifier (SID) which is unique. Even if you
delete an object and then recreate it with exactly the same setting,
they will never be the same. They may look the same, but they will be
treated as different objects by the system.

To preserve the security settings of the roaming user profiles and ensure
that the new user account can access their user profile after the
migration, it is better for us to use ADMT to migrate domain users' roaming
profiles from old domain to new domain
