Disabled people seeking asylum deprived of basic needs in Essex - Sign the open letter
‘I’m an asylum seeker. It changes everything’: In this film we learn from disabled people in the asylum system about the disabling barriers that were already faced in 2012. Since then the restrictions on people seeking asylum have got worse.
The UK asylum and immigration system is disabling. People are restricted from meeting essential needs.
The result is to further disable people with existing impairments as well as to create new impairments including such prevalent mental distress as to be widely considered normal in the asylum system.
This website includes information and ideas to contribute to building a movement of solidarity to resist the disabling impact of restrictions that prevent people from meeting physical and emotional needs.
