Following the Government’s disgraceful decision to end its commitment to the Dubs Amendment, which provided safe passage for vulnerable unaccompanied children displaced across Europe, Social Workers Without Borders are launching our campaign #DELIVERONDUBS. We are calling on the Government to act on its previous promises and raise the bar to protect these children.
This Campaign coincides with our vital Crowd Justice fundraising effort – see link below, to allow us to continue our support to unaccompanied children and undertake professional Best Interests Assessments. These assessments are currently being used to support 37 children in a High Court challenge by Duncan Lewis Solicitors to appeal the UK Governments rejection of their Asylum claims.
(LINK BECOMES ACTIVE AT 8PM FRIDAY 10 FEBRUARY)
There are 2 ways to help:
1. Please contribute whatever you can to fund our work. This is more essential now than ever. The accommodation centres for children across France close this month and young people are making their way back to Calais to live in conditions more appalling and unsafe then even the now demolished ‘Jungle’.
2. Please share this email and link as widely as possible with family, friends and organisations who can support. Share on Facebook and Tweet.
Thank you so much for your help.
