Gifts of your time

By sparing a few hours every week or month, you could make a significant difference to the lives of separated children.

Join our ‘Purple Packing’ team

Volunteers play a vital role in the delivery of our packing project, preparing packs that will be distributed to unaccompanied child refugees around the UK. Every two weeks, a team meets at the Big Yellow at Staples Corner to create arrival packs and sleep packs, giving dignity and comfort to separated children after their traumatic experiences. We have seen unprecedented demand for packs over the past year and only expect the need to increase.
