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.

New year update

The commitment of our supporters, volunteers and donors meant that we were able to supply a record-breaking number of arrival packs and sleep packs to separated children in 2021, as well as 380 emergency packs as a result of our Festive Appeal.
