The Government continues to work with Greece, France and Italy and works collaboratively with NGOs and International organisations, including British Red Cross, UNHCR and Unicef to ensure the safe and efficient identification and transfer of eligible children as well as to ensure the efficient operation of the Dublin Regulation.

We have secondees in Greece and Italy who are working with those Member States and relevant partners to provide advice and support on the process for transferring eligible children under section 67 in the future. In addition, we continue to work with EU partners and NGOs to ensure the efficient operation of the Dublin Regulation.
