If it's just for a visit they will need a standard visitor visa, which i'm guessing as you are on a travel site. The link below has information for a child travelling along

You can travel to the UK without an adult (someone over the age of 18).

Your parent or guardian will need to provide their:

  • written consent for you to travel to the UK

  • full contact details

They’ll also need to provide proof that you have somewhere suitable to live during your stay in the UK, including:

  • the name and date of birth of the person that you will be staying with an address where you will be living
  • details of your relationship to the person who’ll be looking after you
  • consent in writing so they can look after you during your stay in the UK

A Standard Visitor visa costs £89

  • 2 years - £337
  • 5 years - £612
  • 10 years - £767

If you are applying for a visa for the child to move to the UK you will need a family visa
