Karen raises £1,437.50 for our Fund


Karen Newbigging ran the Greater Manchester 10k raising an incredible £1,437.50.

On her fundraising page Karen said:

“I am not a runner but running in the Great Manchester run to raise funds for this important charity. All of us will be aware that circumstances in this country for people seeking refuge from torture and persecution are incredibly difficult. In comparison, this challenge is nothing but hope you will support me to raise money for others.”

Government Consults on Ending Support for Refused Asylum Seekers with Children

Following the announcement that asylum support would be cut for children from 10 August 2015, the government have released a consultation document that proposes to end support for refused asylum seekers with children and to remove the right of appeal against Home Office decisions to stop asylum support.

Please contact your MP to protest at these draconian proposals.
