"And all the water in the tap." Rest in Power Judith Kerr https://www.theguardian.com/books/2019/may/23/judith-kerr-beloved-author-of-the-tiger-who-came-to-tea-dies-aged-95?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Copy_to_clipboard …
Donated to @RefugeeAction today in memory of Judith Kerr, who arrived in Britain in 1936 as a German Jewish refugee.
Please share widely: opportunities to join the @RefugeeAction trustee board Our mission has never been more relevant, the moral imperative to act as urgent as ever We particularly seek interest from anyone with personal experience of life as a refugee
People seeking asylum want to use their skills to earn a living and contribute to the UK, but they’re forced to live in poverty waiting for a decision on their claim. The public strongly backs change, ministers should stop squabbling and #LiftTheBan now.
As a Bidoon in Kuwait, Saira was stripped of her rights, she fled for her life and her unborn son's. In the UK she felt like she didn't exist once again - laughed at during her asylum interview, her claim not recorded and her living allowance denied.
Scandalous. All other publicly funded services set targets and report on performance. (NHS. Schools..) Govt must set targets for speed, accuracy, people’s understanding of system etc. @RefugeeAction pressing this. Lives depend on asylum decisions
This must not allow appalling and declining standards of decision making on asylum claims to become even worse. These are life and death decisions. @ukhomeoffice must get them right quickly first time round to stop putting people’s lives on hold.
Doctors and nurses are trained to care for us when we need it most. But even the most vital healthcare workers are banned from working if they’re seeking asylum in the UK. Agree with us that this needs to change? Sign the petition to #LiftTheBan: https://act.refugee-action.org.uk/page/29178/petition/1 …
