Family matters and this Human Rights Day STAR students have been campaigning to bring refugee #FamiliesTogether

Refugee families who have already been separated by war and persecution are being kept apart by strict rules on family reunion. Adult refugees can sponsor only their very closest relatives to join them – their partners and children under 18 years old – and refugee children in the UK have no family reunion rights so can’t bring their parents to join them.

STAR is part of the #FamiliesTogether coalition campaigning to change the rules and we’ve been busy getting petitions signed on campus, writing Christmas cards to our MPs and sharing photos on social media to raise awareness…
