Unaccompanied asylum-seeking children to be resettled from Europe

Unaccompanied asylum-seeking children will be resettled from Greece, Italy and France, in an initiative announced today following discussions between the government and Save the Children.

This initiative builds on last month’s announcement that up to 3,000 vulnerable children and family members will be resettled direct from the Middle East and North Africa.

And it adds to the resettlement of 20,000 people direct from Syrian refugee communities, which has been under way since last year.
