asylum seekers received practical advice and support
Every year, people are forced to flee their countries due to war or violence. Some people come to the UK to find safety and claim asylum. While they are waiting for the government to make a decision on their claim, they aren’t allowed to work.
The current system is unfair – people can wait years for a decision, unable to work in all that time. It pushes people into poverty and isolation and it just doesn’t make sense! Why not let them provide for their families and give back to the country that’s sheltered them?
Ben & Jerry’s have teamed up with Refugee Action as part of the Lift The Ban coalition to ask our government to change the rules and make life a little sweeter for people who have fled war and violence. Join the campaign by signing the petition and let our government know that waiting isn’t working!
People seeking asylum can’t wait to work. Let’s give them the right, right now.
