Teresa Pearce MP signs letter to the Home Secretary urging the Government to better support the health and wellbeing of young Asylum Seekers


Teresa Pearce MP is one of the signatories on a letter delivered this week to the Home Secretary alongside Members of Parliament, civil society organisations and public figures, urging the Government to take concrete and immediate action to support the health and wellbeing of young asylum seekers in the UK.

Teresa said

“Bearing in mind the grave atrocities young adult asylum seekers have fled from, it is unfathomable that they should arrive in the UK and not receive the support they need to thrive in this society.

I am happy to support the call for government to provide asylum seeking minors with similar support as care leavers, from the moment they leave care until they reach their 25th birthday”.
