CBE for Trust's Founder and Director
"The International Association of Former Child Migrants and their Families congratulates Margaret Humphreys on this richly deserved honour after more than two decades of sustained campaigning and professional commitment.
We are delighted that the British Government has finally recognized Margaret's remarkable contribution to former UK Child Migrants and their families - by founding the Child Migrants Trust, bringing families together and leading the way to social justice.
Over 23 years ago, Margaret led us out of the wilderness of silence and cover ups to a more hopeful and dignified place. One by one, we learnt we were not orphans, we were given hope. Above all, we were not alone, we had families. Margaret Humphreys' humanitarian work rightly deserves to be recognised."
