Three children are living in a one bedroom flat with their father, surviving on £6 per day. A mother finds herself homeless, sleeping on a friend’s sofa-bed with her son. Families are facing extreme poverty because strict immigration rules prevent them from accessing the welfare safety net, even if they can't work during the pandemic.

Our campaign to suspend these rules and provide a lifeline to these families is moving in the right direction. However, the current crisis means things need to move faster.

The Government must hear these stories and step in to provide an urgent lifeline for all. Please ask your MP to act so every child has the support they need to get through this crisis.
