New government proposals in the Nationality and Borders Bill currently before Parliament abandon people fleeing war and persecution. We’re calling for a more humane approach to people seeking protection in the UK.

There is more information on the website of our partners at Asylum Matters 

There is also a page on the National  CoS website including “Celebrating Sanctuary” toolkit especially aimed at organising public meetings with decision makers and influencers.

We support the coalition campaigning on the bill : Together With Refugees 

The Refugee Council has a petition opposing the bill which you can see and sign here
