Charity information

Children and Families Across Borders (CFAB)

Since 1955 we have identified & protected children moving across international borders due to abuse, neglect, conflict, trafficking, abduction or migration, where possible reuniting them with their families. CFAB supports children on the move between the UK & other countries & children who are separated from their family in another country. The complexities of migration & international separation can make many of these children particularly hard to support & vulnerable to abuse & exploitation.

Founded 1955

  • Mission statement

    CFAB is a unique independent charity & is part of an international network which acts to promote & protect the rights & welfare of children, adults & families whose personal circumstances require inter-country liaison.

    With the ever increasing movement of the world’s population across borders & continents, whether voluntary or forced, family members often become separated & this may leave them vulnerable & at risk. CFAB seeks to promote & protect the rights of these families, children & vulnerable adults across international borders, according to the UN Convention on Human Rights and on the Rights of the Child.
