United Kingdom: Rise in English foster care for refugee children prompts call for govt action
Thomson Reuters Foundation – September 29, 2016
“Given the unprecedented number of children facing crisis around the world, and the rise in the number of unaccompanied children being taken into care, the UK could and should be doing more,” said Sol Oyuela, director of Public Affairs at UNICEF UK. She said the government must reunite lone refugee children who have become stranded in Europe with their families in Britain, and ensure local authorities are equipped to care for unaccompanied child asylum-seekers.
