As the Afghanistan crisis unfolds, now more than ever we need to uphold the rights of refugees. This is a crisis. We must allow child refugees to reunite with their families in the UK.
These values are upheld in EU legislation, but after Brexit, Priti Patel stopped allowing child refugees from reuniting with their families in the UK. With thousands of Afghan families fleeing the Taliban, we must change course.
We are calling on Priti Patel and the Government to set aside dogma and allow child refugees to reunite with their family members in the UK.
Sign this petition and tell the government to change their policy towards child refugees.
We are shocked and appalled that EU citizens are being treated like criminals and detained at the border.
Innocent people are being handcuffed, detained, and even prevented from accessing their medication or phones.
This 'hostile environment' policy has always been unacceptable and this scandal must be ended, immediately, before more innocent people are mistreated by the UK state.
We are calling on Home Secretary Priti Patel to bring an immediate end to the detention and deportation of EU citizens legally entering the UK, and to end the Government's 'hostile environment' policy.
Leaving the European Union is the most significant change in UK policy in a generation. As we pass the 100-day mark since the end of the transition period, 10 people from across the UK tell us in their own words how Brexit has affected them.
We tell the story of a business owner whose company faces closure as he struggles to reach his customers in Europe; we hear from a classical musician unable to ply their trade; we hear from a farmer concerned about what the future holds for their farm. And many more.
These ten people are not extraordinary. Their experiences are not unique. They – the farmers, fishers, entrepreneurs, community champions and artists – are what makes the UK special and who drives our economy.
The ten people in this report, and the millions like them, face an uncertain future after Brexit. There is no quick fix for resolving their issues. But this report sets out a handful of urgent measures the government can put in place to soften the blow felt by many
The UK may have now left the European Union, but we remain tremendously proud that 3.6 million EU nationals call our country home.
Yet currently, EU citizens residing in the UK, as well as 1.3 million UK citizens living in the EU, are still not guaranteed that their existing rights will be maintained following the end of the Brexit transition period.
Despite the fact that Boris Johnson was defeated in the House of Lords, the government has steadfastly refused to give EU citizens in the UK physical proof of their settled status.
We will not allow the government to weaponize citizens’ rights in trade negotiations.
This is about more than Brexit.
This is about the future of our colleagues, our friends, our family.

The most significant trade deal in recent history was rushed through parliament in less than a day. It has never been more important for the Brexit deal and its impact to be examined.
Yet the government is denying MPs any chance to scrutinise Boris Johnson’s deal. This is a threat to democratic accountability.
Brexit will affect the everyday lives of people and businesses across the UK. As a representative of the people, Parliament should have the right to scrutinise this deal.
Sign this petition and tell Jacob Rees-Mogg to reverse this decision and to reinstate the committee that will scrutinise Brexit.
Boris Johnson’s Brexit bears no resemblance to what was promised. It is a Bad Deal for Britain that is unwelcome when we are already worried about our jobs and businesses because of the coronavirus recession.
It is clear that the government will get its deal through the Commons - there is no doubt about that - but it should not be given a ringing endorsement. MPs will be voting on this deal in just a few days. Ask Opposition MPs not to endorse this Bad Deal for Britain. Ask your whipped Conservative MP what they will do to ensure local livelihoods are protected.
We will hold the Government to account for the harm this deal will do to Britain. It was a political choice, and opposition MPs should make this government take full responsibility.
Not sure where to start? We’ve made a draft letter that you can use as you like. Just follow the steps below to take action now.
Boris Johnson’s Brexit trade deal is a bad deal for Britain.
This disastrous deal leaves us in a worse position than we held as a member of the EU. From our economy to our jobs, to our British food and farming industry, Boris Johnson’s government has chosen a deal that sacrifices them all.
This was not an accident, but a choice made by this government. They have chosen to implement the first trade deal in modern history that creates more barriers to trade. It is people like you and me that will suffer.
Here are just some of the implications of this deal for communities across the UK...
