Right now, refugee children are living in the UK without their families. None of them wanted to leave their homes, but they had no choice in the face of war and conflict.

Now they are here, they are alone. 

You might think that when they arrive here, their journey to safety is over. But for many, this is not the case. Not only have they fled war, persecution, violence and terror in their home countries, they now face isolation, hatred and confusion here in the UK.

Current refugee family reunion laws prevent child refugees from bringing any family to live with them in the UK.  Although safe at last, the face their new life and uncertain future without their family.

But we are working to change this, and with your help, we believe we can achieve this. 

Created by award-winning director Catherine Prowse, ‘Without my mum’ tells the story of a mother and her young son whose loving relationship is suddenly changed forever when the threat of violence forces the child to escape on his own.

Watch and share the film, and help us increase pressure on the Home Secretary to change the unfair rules.

Families belong together.
