The UK will accept children from refugee camps in the Middle East.
The UK is to accept more unaccompanied child refugees from Syria and other conflict zones - but the government has not said how many.
The Home Office will work with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees to identify "exceptional cases" from camps in Syria and neighbouring countries.
The UK is to take 20,000 refugees from Syria by 2020 - but campaigners want 3,000 children to be taken from Europe.
The government also said it was giving £10m to help vulnerable refugee minors already in Europe. Some could be brought to the UK "where it is in their best interests".
The UK has already accepted about 1,000 refugees from Syria.
Mr Cameron has also been criticised for not signing up to the EU-wide resettlement and relocation scheme for refugees.
The Home Office has not put a figure on how many under-18s will be taken in as part of the joint initiative with the UNHCR or over what period but it has confirmed those accepted will be in addition to the existing 20,000 figure.
