For children arriving in the UK without family, navigating their new life alone can be terrifying. Caught between a traumatic past and an uncertain future, their difficult journey is far from over.

We will be writing to the Home Secretary to urge him to introduce independent guardians for all separated children in England and Wales. Please add your name in support.
