Imagine being a child or young person…
Imagine not having your parents with you because they were killed before you left or were unable to leave…

What we do
The Separated Child Foundation offers emotional, social, financial and physical support to separated children and young people in Britain up to the age of 21. We also engage in educational activities that raise awareness of their needs and encourage positive responses to them.
Volunteer with us
Can you spare a few hours a month to help us ensure that every separated child arriving in the UK can be given one of our packs when they first arrive? We’re looking for new volunteers – including Pack Leaders – to help us create arrival packs and sleep packs, offering comfort and dignity to separated children.
By choosing to donate to The Separated Child Foundation you will be making a real difference to the lives of the vulnerable and traumatised children we support. We rely on your donations to enable us to provide our services to support separated children when they need it.
With many colleagues in the children’s sector, we have signed a joint statement in response to the Illegal Migration Bill.

Child Refugee Stories
The voices of the children we support are powerful. We have collected some of their stories and projects that they have been involved in. These are informative and moving.
