Supporting a New Blueprint

It was fantastic to spot a quote from Sarah, the director of PERN, in the Guardian today. PERN was one of the 300 civil society organisations and 534 individuals working with migrants who signed a letter to new Prime Minister Keir Starmer with a blueprint for asylum policy, which urges him to change course from the policies of the previous government.

Sarah said:

“Refugees have always been part of the UK and we ask our new government to rebuild this tradition. For too long, PERN has watched lives destroyed and talent lost because of the hostile environment. This makes no sense. It is time for change in how we treat those who seek sanctuary in the UK.”
