Campaigning

We join with other organisations to call for changes in policy and practice so a fair, humane and effective asylum system that protects those who seek sanctuary is guaranteed.We work with partners locally, regionally and nationally campaigning so the voices of refugees and asylum seekers are heard and they can rebuild their lives in peace and safety.

Anti-deportation Campaigns

GAP Unit has supported a number of anti-deportation campaigns as an organisation. We continue to back Sofia and Johnson Kalu’s campaign in 2014. There has been some progress with their legal case and some backward steps as UKBA find new ways to make life difficult. We hope to be able to celebrate with them soon. To receive updates on the campaign please send an email to:
