PROTECTING PEOPLE IN CRISIS
Last summer, you stepped up to provide emergency assistance and warm welcomes to evacuated Afghans. But six months on they and many others still need you.
Our teams work tirelessly to support people as they begin to rebuild their lives. But many refugees across the UK are being left in crisis situations because of the asylum system.
Refugee children across the UK are losing out on education.
Families fear falling into destitution and homelessness.
People are suffering from severely deteriorating mental health.
There are still many Afghan refugees stuck in hotels after months, unsure where they’ll be relocated. They feel trapped.
Your support allows Refugee Action crisis teams to be there, to offer the help families need to start again after losing their homes.
”There’s a lot of uncertainty about what support people are entitled to. They are worried about getting lost in the system. They need clarity.Refugee Action team member
Some of the challenges we’re facing
In hotels, requests for relocations aren’t being granted. Families are being left with impossible choices.
By supporting Refugee Action you are helping ensure that people stuck in this crisis are supported.
Because of you, we can be on hand to help people with their emergency needs, teaching them about their rights and how to take their next steps. In hotels we are currently hosting caseworker coffee mornings and working toward hosting regular activities and support sessions to residents.
