UK Payment Scheme for former British Child Migrants

The UK government has set up a payment scheme for former British child migrants who were separated from their families and sent overseas as part of the UK child migration programmes.

Full guidelines for this Scheme are available on the official website here.

For those former Child Migrants who are within the eligibility criteria, if you have not contacted us previously, please contact us here so that we can register your details.

Please give your postal address and your date of birth. If you could also provide any details in relation to your migration (age, where from and to) that would be most helpful. This will ensure we can post the appropriate application form to you without delay.

The Child Migrants Trust is the only specialist service for all Britain's former Child Migrants and their families.   About us

Welcome to the Child Migrants Trust

CMT was established by Margaret Humphreys CBE, OAM; a Nottinghamshire Social Worker. It addresses the devastating impact of the deportation of children from Britain. In the post-war period, child migrants as young as three were shipped to Canada, New Zealand, the former Rhodesia and Australia, a practice that continued as late as 1970.

A registered charity in both Australia and Britain, CMT provides a range of social work services, including counselling and support for family reunions. The Trust's offices in Nottingham, UK as well as Perth and Melbourne in Australia also offer information, advice and family research to former child migrants and their families.

Please take time to browse our website. It displays useful information and memorable photographs of former child migrants, as children and adults, to give you a window into our vital work.
