300 former child migrants reunited with their families

Almost 300 former child migrants have been reunited with their families in the UK thanks to the Family Restoration Fund.

The £6m Family Restoration Fund, which covers the practical costs of travel, is available to any former child migrant who was sent under school-leaving age, with their relatives, from Great Britain and Northern Ireland to Commonwealth countries.

The fund, which was launched by Health Secretary Andrew Lansley in July 2010, is administed and supported by the Child Migrants Trust.
