Refugee children in Lewisham get over £363,000 in funding

Published on 17 January 2018

​We successfully applied for £363,220 from the Government to support unaccompanied refugee children in the borough.

We will use the money to:

  • increase the number of foster carers supporting refugee children
  • fund training for our foster carers 
  • support refugee children leaving care.

Councillor Kevin Bonavia, Cabinet Member for Resources, said, ‘We will use this new funding to support vulnerable refugee children in Lewisham. Many have travelled alone for thousands of miles from war zones to reach safety here in Lewisham. This extra money will help provide secure and loving homes for refugee children to grow up in.'
