Lord Dubs


Lord (Alf) Dubs was one of the Czech children rescued from the Nazis in the Kindertransport. He has since been a keen campaigner on the plight of refugees: in 2006 he co-published a paper promoting humane alternatives to detention of asylum-seekers, especially children. In spring 2016 he tabled an amendment to the government’s immigration bill in the Lords, which would have forced the government to accept 3,000 unaccompanied child refugees stranded in Europe.

He joined United as a Patron in September 2019.
