Child Refugees Campaign

In May of this year, after a huge public campaign led by Lord Alf Dubs working with the Refugee Taskforce, charities and individuals across the country, the Government agreed that Britain should take in child refugees who are on their own and at risk now in Europe.

The decision marked a fundamental shift in the Government's approach towards the refugee crisis, accepting for the first time the need for Britain to do its bit to help the most vulnerable refugees in countries such as Greece and Italy who can't cope alone.

Now the Refugee Taskforce are now working hard to campaign for the implementation of the Dubs amendment.

Currently NO children have arrived here in the UK under the legislation, despite widespread agreement across Parliament that urgent and immediate action was needed.

According to official estimated, there are currently around 85,000 unaccompanied child refugees in Europe. Many arrived in Europe on their own after their families were killed by bombs and war, some are as young as 7.

These children are currently alone and vulnerable sleeping rough on the streets and in makeshift camps in Greek, Italy and Northern France. Agencies report that many have been trafficked, and are at risk of abuse and prostitution, with Europol estimating at least 10,000 children have simply disappeared. 

With children's homes in Greece and Italy full, and over 600 unaccompanied children and teenagers stuck in the Calais 'jungle', there is an urgent need for Britain to do its bit to prevent these children simply disappearing and risking their lives trying to reach safety.
