Call on your MP to support change in Family Reunion rules
Restrictive rules prevent many refugees in the UK from being reunited with their family.
Family reunion for adult refugees is limited to their partner and children under the age of 18. For child refugees, there is no right to bring any family members to the UK. There is also no legal aid funding available for lawyers to assist people in making the often complex applications.
A Private Members Bill on this issue will have its second reading on Friday 16 March 2018. It needs 100 MPs to vote in favour to ensure it progresses.
Please write to your MP, asking them to attend and vote in favour of the Bill. A template letter is attached.
