    Local Democracy Reporting Service

    Campaigners want Sheffield to become a home for unaccompanied child refugees, but council bosses say there is not enough money or foster families to help, according to the Local Democracy Reporting Service.

    Sue Pearson addressing Sheffield Council

    Sue Pearson, who came to the city 80-years-ago as an 11-year-old refugee from Czechoslovakia, presented a 695-name petition to Sheffield's full council yesterday.

    Mrs Pearson was part of the Kindertransport, an organised rescue effort of Jewish children before the outbreak of World War Two.

    The petition asks the council to welcome 10 child refugees per year for the next 10 years.

    The city has taken in 40 children over the past 18 months, but severe budget cuts and a lack of foster families is making it increasingly difficult.

    Sheffield City Council has said a rise in children coming into care means there aren't enough homes.
