  • Manchester
    Do not let the Home Office deport rough sleepers in Manchester
    At the start of December, the UK government introduced cruel new rules which mean that people born outside of the UK who experience homelessness could lose their right to live in the UK and face being deported. Many people who moved to the UK have worked and raised families here, but when they fall on hard times their immigration status can mean they have “no recourse to public funds” and are unable to access help with housing or any financial support. In the middle of a pandemic which has left many people out of work and struggling to keep a roof over their head, we should be helping find people safe warm homes, not putting them on deportation flights. For this policy to work, it needs local councils to let the Home Office know details of people experiencing homelessness. Several councils across the UK, including Liverpool, have committed to not sharing sensitive personal data of rough sleepers with the Home Office to prevent cruel deportations, and make sure people aren’t afraid to turn to councils for help if they need it. Sign the petition now to make sure Manchester Council makes the same promise.

  • London
    Do not let the Home Office deport rough sleepers in London
    At the start of December, the UK government introduced cruel new rules - which mean that people born outside of the UK who experience homelessness could be deported. Many people who moved to the UK have worked and raised families here, but when they fall on hard times their immigration status means they have “no recourse to public funds” and are unable to access the support they need to keep a roof over their head. During winter it is more difficult for people experiencing homelessness to safely remain outdoors, but these rules will mean that people born outside of the UK will be unable to access any support because they fear being deported for rough sleeping. Brent, Croydon, Enfield, Islington, Hackney, Haringey, Lambeth, Newham and Southwark have all committed to not sharing sensitive personal data of rough sleepers with the Home Office to prevent these cruel deportations. Sign the petition now to make sure all London councils make the same promise.
