Thanks so much for your interest in campaigning to lift the ban on work for people seeking asylum. We handed this petition in to the Home Office in October 2020, with over 180,000 signatures. Seeing tens of thousands of people coming together to protest this nonsensical ban was a landmark moment for this campaign - but by no means the end.
If you would like to find out more about what's happening with the campaign, you can visit our website here. You can also sign up to our mailing list, to get updates about this campaign and our work supporting refugees and people seeking asylum. You can also encourage your MP to keep the pressure on the Home Office by emailing them here.
We’re furious that the cruel ban is not yet lifted, but certain that the #LiftTheBan Coalition will fight on until people seeking asylum have the right to work.
