Every year people make dangerous journeys to reach our shore and claim asylum. They have fled conflict and persecution and are desperately seeking safety.
But the system they rely on all too often fails them. Instead of safety and shelter, they can be left hungry and homeless on our streets whilst they wait, sometimes years, to get a decision that in many cases is wrong.
It’s unfair and ineffective.
It doesn’t have to be this way. We’re campaigning to change the system. We believe a future is possible where those forced to flee the homes they loved receive compassion, a fair decision, essential support and help to rebuild their lives.
Our new report exposes the asylum process as one of long delays, poor decisions and a total lack of information. It is a system that disempowers, dehumanises and damages people.
If you believe that everyone who comes to Britain in search of safety should be treated with fairness and compassion. That they should be given sufficient support to make sure they don’t face homelessness and hunger, email you MP to #StandUpForAsylum and call for change now.
People who are seeking asylum, they already have lots of problems. They have left everything in their home country, whatever their problem is, they have worries, they are heartbroken. So why not help them?Sardasht
