Barnardo’s response to Gordon Brown’s apology to child migrants

Barnardo's very much welcomes this apology from the British Government. We were one of many agencies involved in child migration in the last century, a policy which was once mainstream child care practice. We express our deepest sympathy for anyone who suffered.

For many years Barnardo’s has worked to help former child migrants by supplying family information, helping to trace relatives and reunite families, offering support and advice. This work continues today.

All media enquiries should be directed to our media line on 0208 498 5555.
