This new Fund, established by Lord Alf Dubs, a survivor of the Kinderstansport, seeks to carry forward the legacy of efforts by the British public in 1938/9 when close to 10,000 children were brought to safety from Europe.
The support raised by this Fund will be used by Citizens UK, and where appropriate sub-granted to trusted partners, to open safe and legal routes for refugees to Britain and other destination countries. It will do this through the mix of community organising, strategic litigation, high level case work and parliamentary advocacy that has been the driver of so much of the change achieved this year. The Fund will also be used to ensure the basic needs of children are met both while their cases are progressed and during the first stages of their new lives here in Britain.Read More
