Coronavirus poses significant challenges and serious risks to every fabric of our society.
However, for the most vulnerable living on the hard edges of society, including; the elderly, people who are isolated, the homeless, destitute migrants with no recourse to public funds, people with insecure immigration status, immigration detainees, migrants in insecure, precarious and low-paid work- coronavirus poses an even greater threat to their lives and livelihoods.
Though necessary, the current lockdown ‘remedies’ will disproportionately affect vulnerable migrants who risk further marginalisation and exclusion from reduced service provision. In this current crisis environment of limited provision and increased competition for fewer opportunities, the most vulnerable become even more exploitable. In the broader context, coronavirus poses a serious risks to existing fragile health, social and economic systems and the impact will disproportionately impact on those at the margins of our society often ‘hidden, ‘ignored’, or ‘crushed’.
In responding effectively to the crisis, Migrant Action applies its core values of humanity, solidarity, collaboration, adaptability, migrant justice, flexibility and resilience to ensure that we continue to serve our purpose in supporting migrants in these difficult times especially the most vulnerable.
So we want to let you know the nature of our service provision during this lockdown period and how the organisation as a whole is responding to the crisis.
What is Migrant Action providing and how?
