Our thoughts are with the families and friends of the 27 people who died crossing the Channel on Wednesday. These 27 people included fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters and children. They were travelling to the UK in search of safety and security.

As members of the Families Together coalition, we are sharing our statement on this avoidable tragedy:-

Families Together

At The Separated Child Foundation we will continue to work for a future where all lone refugee children are greeted with warmth, dignity and hope when they reach the UK.
