Working with children and families across borders
CFAB’s mission is to use their expertise and experience to ensure vulnerable children and families who are separated across international borders are given care and protection, no matter where they come from. As the only UK charity with a qualified team of international child protection professionals, they are uniquely placed to help children reunite safely with family.
CFAB exists to ensure that every child in the UK has the right to care, protection and family life, no matter where they come from.
CFAB works with partners in over 130 countries, both as part of the International Social Service (ISS) network and through independent partnerships.
The ISS network provides access to expert, on-the-ground support which allows them to assess whether a child’s return to their home country is realistic and in their best interests. This is more appropriate and cost-effective than sending social workers from the UK to make family assessments overseas.
