The Alf Dubs Children’s Fund

Alf Dubs arrived in Britain on a train from Prague in 1938 when he was just six years old. He was one of 10,000 Jewish and other children rescued by the Kindertransport in the two years before the outbreak of WWII. Now a member of the House of Lords and life-long advocate for refugees, Lord Alf Dubs is leading efforts to help a new generation of unaccompanied child refugees in Europe and on their arrival to the UK. The Alf Dubs Children’s Fund is an appeal set up by Lord Dubs with the support of Safe Passage. The fund seeks to carry forward the legacy of the Kindertransport for a new generation of child refugees today.

What will the Fund be used for?

Funds raised will be used in the following ways:

  • To help open safe and legal routes to sanctuary for unaccompanied children at risk in countries across Europe and beyond.
  • To ensure the basic needs of refugee children are met while their cases are progressed.
  • To support children who have arrived in Britain through their first steps to rebuilding their lives.
  • To build the capacity of communities to welcome and support their integration.

How is the Fund linked to the Kindertransport survivors?

Lord Dubs is a child of the Kindertransport and like many children given sanctuary in Britain he has been moved to help by the plight of children caught up in today’s refugee crisis.

 The refugee crisis today is very different to the circumstances that led to WWII and the holocaust in Europe. However, just as Britain was one of the only countries to act then, many across the country believe we have the capacity and obligation to help again.
