At the launch of the parliamentary report addressing asylum support for children and young people, members of the inquiry - including Labour, Conservative and Liberal Democrat MPs, and a bishop - shared their thoughts about the report and the inquiry's findings. We also spoke to one of our programme workers who works directly with young asylum-seekers and their families.

The people who shared their thoughts include:

In response to the report, we launched the End Forced Destitution campaign. Please take part - email your MP now and ask them to improve the support for children seeking asylum.
