Church leaders call on the Government to welcome refugee children

Will you join with church leaders to call on the Government to welcome more unaccompanied refugee children into the UK? 

You will undoubtedly have heard of the Government's decision to close the Dubs Scheme for unaccompanied refugee children coming to the UK from Europe. As a church leader, would you be willing to add your voice to the statement below?

Statement on the closure of the Dubs transfer scheme

On Wednesday 8 Feb the Government announced the imminent closure of the Dubs transfer scheme. The Dubs scheme made provision for unaccompanied asylum seeking children who are in transit in Europe to be brought into the UK. Lord Dubs had originally asked for 3,000 children to be accepted (a calculated 'fair share' for Britain given the number of unaccompanied refugee children in Europe). The Government agreed to welcome an unspecified number. The scheme is planning to close with 200 children having arrived so far and the promise of around 150 more to be brought in. 

This number is far smaller than what is desired. It fits neither the spirit nor the intention behind the transfer scheme and leaves many vulnerable unaccompanied children still in Europe in unsuitable conditions. There are challenges to bringing in more children and teenagers, but there is a willingness from the public to offer help and find solutions to these challenges. Home for Good has had a huge response from the general public with over 13,500 wanting to find out how to start the process to be assessed to foster asylum seeking children.

We believe there is capacity in the UK - but the current national and local systems are not in place to access this.

  • We therefore call on the Government to open the door again to refugee children and engage with discussions about how more can be done for them.
  • As leaders we offer to assist the Government in making use of civil society’s willingness to help local authorities provide care for these children.
