    The UK is stopping a scheme to help child refugees. Call on them to reverse this policy.

    This week, the UK government announced it will end a scheme that allows unaccompanied child refugees to come to the UK .

    We believe this is shameful - and requires immediate public outcry. We are not talking about terrorists. We are talking about children who are alone, with no family, home, or safe place to go. If we, as one of the richest countries in the world, cannot find the compassion to help, who will?

    The scheme was devised by a former child refugee - Alfred Dubs - who was rescued from the Nazis and brought to London as a 6-year-old by the ‘Kindertransport’ in 1939. He’s now a Lord in parliament, and says he owes his life to Sir Nicholas Winton, who started the scheme.

    We believe Britain is better than this. If you agree, send a tweet calling on Amber Rudd to keep this scheme running and allow unaccompanied child refugees a safe home in the UK.
