Of the 20,000 Syrian Refugees coming to the UK over the next five years, many are expected to be orphans and “unaccompanied minors” – young people in camps on their own. The London-wide Paddington Bear Action is calling for the support of the Mayor to assist council leaders to bring unaccompanied refugee children to safe and loving homes in London.


Of the 20,000 Syrian Refugees coming to the UK over the next five years, many are expected to be orphans and “unaccompanied minors” – young people in camps on their own.

Many of the young people who will be resettled may suffer serious trauma, even those without acute difficulties can only be placed with families with the utmost care. They may find it difficult to communicate and difficult to trust. It is vitally important that these children and young people are placed in safe homes where they can have the time, space and support to begin to rebuild their lives.

The London-wide Paddington Bear Action is calling for the support of the Mayor to assist council leaders to bring unaccompanied refugee children to safe and loving homes in London.
