Tell the Government: The UK should be a safe place for people fleeing torture

The UK has traditionally prided itself on being a safe place for people fleeing torture and persecution. But our government and institutions are letting us down. Evidence of institutional racism, structural inequality, and a culture of disbelief are preventing vulnerable people from accessing the safety they need and are entitled to.

Sign the declaration and help us call for a future in which the UK is a safe place for people fleeing torture. A place we can all believe in and feel proud to call home.

The Declaration: 

I believe the UK should be a place of safety for people who have survived torture

The UK must:

  1. Be proud to offer safety to people forced to flee their homes because of torture.

  2. Ensure a fair system that gets decisions on asylum claims right first time. The people making decisions about peoples' lives must not reject them unfairly and send them back to torture.

  3. Give people who have been tortured the chance to rebuild their lives and become part of our society. To do this, it must help them access therapy, healthcare, education, legal support and a safe and secure home.

  4. Not lock-up people who have already suffered terrible abuse. Survivors of torture should never be detained for immigration purposes.

  5. Stand up to governments and our leaders when they commit or enable torture or turn a blind eye to it. Torture destroys peoples' lives. We believe that trade agreements should never take priority over people's rights. Nothing can ever justify torture.
