End forced destitution

The asylum system often lets down young people and their families, leaving them vulnerable and forced to survive far below the poverty line. The recent parliamentary inquiry from the Children’s Society uncovered the same situation for these vulnerable families. They described a situation that often leaves young people vulnerable and far below the poverty line, and the report called for the Home Office to make urgent changes to the asylum-support system.

Please join us the Children’s Society in demanding change, so that no child, no matter where they are from, ever has to suffer inhumanely. The link below explains more and provides an easy way for you to contact your MP.
