Organisation Child Migrants Trust (1987 - )
- Advocacy Body, Community Service Organisation and Support Service
The Child Migrants Trust was established by Margaret Humphreys, a social worker from Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom. It addresses the issues surrounding the deportation of children from the United Kingdom. In the post World War Two period, children as young as three were sent by ship to Canada, New Zealand, the former Rhodesia and Australia. This practice continued until 1970.
The Child Migrants Trust provides a specilaised service, reuniting Britain's former Child Migrants with their mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters and other relatives. Its United Kingdom base is in Nottingham, with offices in Australia in Perth and Melbourne.
