The Second Reading of the Refugees Family Reunion Bill will take place this Friday 16th March. This will be the first opportunity for debate and where the overall principles of the Bill are considered. As part of our work to provide effective services to people experiencing poverty, marginalisation and subjugation, and also in line with our strategic joint working partnership policy, SpringAid Consultancy International CIC has teamed up and in support of organisations like Oxfam, Refugee Council, Amnesty International, British Red Cross and UNHCR, to make change happen.
As a result, we need 100 MPs to turn up and vote for the changes.
