Our response to the Children’s Commissioner’s report ‘Landing in Dover’
Enver Solomon, Policy Director at The Children’s Society, said:
'This report provides clear and depressing evidence that the welfare of children has not been prioritised when they arrive on our shores. Children turn up at Dover often after journeys spanning many months - tired, traumatised and hungry. They’re in need of a friendly face and a safe place to stay. Instead they are detained and interrogated.
