The government’s immigration policy is deliberately aimed at creating a hostile environment for migrants whereby migrants basic rights and justice are systematically eroded. Through advocacy we seek to challenge all forms of discrimination, inequality and injustice. We enable migrants to access justice and actualise their rights working in partnership with specialist services. Through advocacy we aim to make equality and social justice a reality for migrants.
