Right now, refugee children are alone and exposed to danger, while their family members wait desperately for them in the UK. Children like Bilal*, who spent seven months waiting in Calais before being able to join his brother who was living in the UK.

The Government can and must change this, by urgently reuniting children with their families.

To do this, the Government must speed up the process for reuniting unaccompanied children in Europe with their families in the UK, and widen immigration laws to allow children to be with extended family members who can care for them.

By reuniting children safely and legally with their families, we can protect them from making dangerous journeys or being forced into the hands of traffickers and smugglers.
