Drawing on the experiences of children themselves, Away from Home provides vital insights into why children move and the risks they face.

It looks at how policy-makers and service-providers can support children who are on the move, including tackling the worst forms of children’s movement and exploitation.

It argues that child protection systems and other services, as well as migration policies, need to be adapted so that they work for children on the move.

“An important and timely report abut the very many mobile children and young people around the world who migrate without their parents and are not trafficked.” —Ann Whitehead, Professor of Anthropology, University of Sussex

“It is time to press governments to stop ignoring or abusing such children and to start protecting them more effectively.” —Mike Dottridge, Consultant on children’s rights
