On 16 April 2015, Cambridge City Council became the 13th Council to pass a motion against the destitution of asylum seekers. The motion was proposed by Cllr. Mike Pitt (Lib Dem) and passed without any votes against. Click here to see the text of the motion.
We hope that Cambridge will join Bristol City Council to sign the Joint Commitment to Action Towards Ending Destitution of Asylum Seekers and be inspired by the examples of effective action to support refugees who are destitute from around the UK that were shared at the Ending Asylum Destitution conference held in Bristol in March this year.
