The Vulnerable Children’s Resettlement Scheme (VCRS) has resettled over 1,747 refugees, including children and their families, from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

We work with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) who refer eligible cases to the UK for resettlement. VCRS cases are referred under the Children and Adolescents at Risk UNHCR resettlement submission category, which includes children with disabilities and other needs.
