Support Us

 CFAB is a small charity where every donation has a huge impact. By supporting us, you will be keeping children safe and allowing them to grow up with their families, but it doesn’t stop there. Children who grow up with family rather than in institutional care or with unrelated carers, are found to be happier, healthier and better off in the long-term, and this extends to their own children too.

For every £1 you give, 85p will be spent on making change happen – long lasting change. It will enable us to support children and families, to train child protection professionals and to advocate for a child’s right to family, no matter where they are from. The remainder will help us to generate more income, ensuring CFAB’s work will continue in the days and years ahead.

Together we can reunite vulnerable children with their families, giving them safe, loving homes where they will thrive.

Finding home - a short story by cFAB

Finding Home - Lena's Story

From a very young age, Lena lived with her grandmother in the UK as her parents were alcoholics and unable to look after her.

However, when she was 5, her father demanded to look after her. He took her to Slovakia to live with his new girlfriend. In her new home, Lena was regularly beaten, starved and neglected.

Lena’s father had become involved in illegal activities and was killed in gang violence when Lena was 7. Lena was abandoned and soon after was taken into care.

The Slovakian authorities called CFAB’s Advice Line in the hope of finding Lena’s family. CFAB’s expert inter-country child protection team were able to find Lena’s grandmother and complete all of the necessary checks, paperwork and legal work to ensure Lena would be safe with her. Lena was eventually reunited with her grandmother who was able to provide her with a safe and stable home.
