The Vulnerable Children’s Resettlement Scheme is available to children at a high risk of harm and exploitation along with their families. Identified by the United Nations as being most in need, they are resettled to the UK from refugee camps and other unsafe environments across the Middle East and North Africa.
3,000vulnerable children and family members will be resettled in the UK through the VCRS by 2020
How we help vulnerable children and their families
As with the Syrian Resettlement Programme [link to page], our staff and volunteers work with children and their families for between one and five years.
After the first year of intensive support, our Independent Living Advice Service helps families into independence, enabling them to do everyday things for themselves. We monitor their progress, reviewing their support every six months.
300vulnerable children and family members were supported through our programme in 2018
