Separated Child

deprived denied detained displaced


Imagine having to flee your homeland because of war, terror, or persecution…

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…

Imagine arriving in a strange country, seeking asylum, completely alone…

Imagine having absolutely nothing.

Now imagine
being able to help.

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.

Hannah and Ed asked their guests not to give them wedding presents but rather to make a donation to ‘Separated Child’. Such a welcome and generous donation! We wish Ed and Hannah a long and happy life together. (Photo: Sam Churchill)

Children’s Voices

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.
