Separated Child

deprived denied detained displaced

Imagine…

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.

Urgent appeal

Due to the most recent devastating events in Afghanistan, hundreds of thousands of people – including children, many travelling alone – have been forced to flee their homes. Please support our appeal and offer comfort, dignity and hope to Afghan children.
