The UK government is set to resume evictions of refugees housed in temporary accommodation. Hundreds of refugees now fear imminent homelessness, which is simply unacceptable.
The Refugee Council is calling on the government to take urgent action to ensure safety for everyone with:
- A consistent Government approach to housing and public health that ends discrimination against refugees
- A realistic timetable for resuming of evictions to reduce anxiety and ensure refugees have time to find suitable, alternative accommodation
- A clear commitment to mitigate the risk of homelessness for all required to leave their accommodation
