Sign up to Walk for Child Refugees

You are encouraged to sign up to Walk for Child Refugees.

Refugee Council’s 10K night walk will raise money for their Children’s Section, which works to improve the lives of separated child refugees who arrive in the UK completely alone after fleeing war, conflict and persecution in their countries.

The Walk for Child Refugees will be held on 1st September 2012, in London.

The route will go through some of London's most spectacular sites along the River Thames, as well as locations that reflect the contribution of refugees to British society. For example, around half of the workers that built the Southbank Centre in 1951 were refugees.

Refugee Council’s Children’s Section is the only dedicated national service for these young people. “There is no-one else for them to turn to. We help guide them through the asylum system and get them released from detention centres. We help girls who have been exploited and help children get a good solicitor and a proper age assessment so that they can get the support they are entitled to,” Refugee Council says.

Free registration to the Refugee Council London night walk is for a limited time only, so don’t forget to sign up today to avoid disappointment!
