City of Sanctuary’s response to government consultation on proposed changes to asylum support

On the 4th August, the government published plans to make substantial changes to Section 95 and Section 4 support for people who have been refused asylum in the UK. The plans include proposals to withdraw asylum support for families that have been refused refugee protection.

A consultation was launched to seek feedback on these proposals, with a deadline for submissions of 9th Sep. Details of the consultation are here.

City of Sanctuary has submitted a response to the consultation, outlining our concerns. Our response can be found here.

Here is the consultation response from the Wales City of Sanctuary Coordinator.

With thanks to all those who contributed to these consultation responses.
