We're Crowdfunding for our advocacy and casework clinic!
YOUR DONATION WILL HELP REFUGEES, ASYLUM SEEKERS AND VULNERABLE MIGRANTS IN TIMES OF CRISIS ACCESS SPECIALIST ADVICE AND SUPPORT.
In the current political climate our advocacy work is a vital life line for many people in crisis. The UK's 'hostile environment' has resulted in the financial and social marginalisation of refugees, asylums seekers and migrants, which often denies them safety and humanity. The expansion of data sharing, immigration enforcement, detention and deportations have greatly heightened the vulnerabilities of refugee and migrant communities in the UK, a situation the British Red Cross have called a 'humanitarian crisis'.
Your donation will help refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants in times of crisis access specialist advice and support. By supporting Refugee Connection to advocate with and for refugee and migrant communities you will be helping us to mitigate the risk factors that make them much more vulnerable to homelessness, destitution and exploitation.
Cuts to legal aid, chronic underfunding and a sector stretched beyond capacity has resulted in some of the most marginalised in our society being completely excluded from legal support and access to justice. Refugee Connection is responding directly to the needs of migrant and refugee communities by delivering a free advice and advocacy service, supporting and advocating for people who are not entitled to mainstream support and who often slip through the net.
