LORD ALFRED DUBS

2017

CHAMPION AWARD 

Lord Dubs is a lifelong champion of refugee rights. He served as  Director of the Refugee Council, from 1988 to 1995. In 2016 he championed  an amendment to the Immigration Bill which compelled the UK Government to take in unaccompanied child refugees into the UK. Lord Dubs won cross-party support for the landmark Dubs amendment and continues to fight for its rightful implementation. Lord Dubs and 10 of his fellow ‘Kinder’ have set up the Alf Dubs Children’s Fund for the Safe Passage project to help open safe and legal routes for unaccompanied refugee children in Europe and beyond.
