Even as we write this, the news about the UK’s welcome to many unaccompanied refugee children in Calais and elsewhere is changing.  Here are some certainties:

  • The situation for unaccompanied child refuges who have a right to be in the UK is desperate
  • The UK government’s response is too little and far, far too late
  • Milton Keynes Council is trying to do its part
  • The bureaucracy is confusing and difficult to manage
  • The Red Cross have released a wonderful booklet “No Place for Children”. It makes pitiful but important reading. A copy is available for you in PDF format by

  • Refugees Welcome Milton Keynes aims to work with MK Council (and government bodies) to create a workable process to help these vulnerable children
