Our Patrons

Lord Dubs

Alf Dubs came to the UK on the Kindertransport from Czechoslovakia aged just 6. He grew up to become Labour MP for Wandsworth and is now a peer and a figure-head for the Safe Passage campaign to bring unaccompanied refugee children – like he was – to safety in the UK.

Shappi Khorsandi

Our other patron is Shappi Khorsandi, the fabulous comedian and author who also came here as a child refugee from Iran – but with her family, unlike Alf, because her father had to flee after he fell out with the regime there.
