Protection Gap campaign influences Home Office Action Plan

Categories: Blog,Protection Gap

LogoFollowing an extensive postcard campaign, the Home Office included all five of our demands in its Gender Asylum Action Plan produced in March 2015.

We are encouraged that the Home Office is continuing to engage with us on their progress on the issues we have raised.  They are taking our concerns very seriously and we are pleased they are following them up.

The measure where there has been most progress so far is childcare.

However we believe we need to continue to advocate for these demands until they are fully implemented.  Only then will women have measures in place that enhance their chances of obtaining an accurate credibility assessment and the right initial asylum decision from the very beginning.

For a summary of the campaign, watch this short video by the Refugee Women’s Strategy Group:
