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.

Meet our new Chair

“The circumstances that have led every single child to be separated are unique and I am not confident they have the advocacy that they deserve.” Our new chairperson, Sarah Castro MBE, shares her hopes and plans for The Separated Child Foundation.

Annie's masks

We are proud to share the story of this young volunteer. For the past few months, 12 year old Annie has been making and selling face masks to raise money for The Separated Child Foundation. In May she joined our packing session with five of her friends.

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.
