The Huffington Post Supports Our Campaign #BringThemHome

Back to Blog

Posted on December 23rd 2017

This Christmas The Huffington Post has taken up our campaign to shine a light on the pain and suffering caused to families in the UK who do not meet the minimum income requirement. Since July 2012 the UK Government has severely restricted the ability of British citizens to sponsor family members from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) wishing to join them in the UK. For a British citizen to sponsor a spouse , they must first demonstrate that they have maintained an income of at least £18,600. An estimated 15,000 children in the UK are affected by these draconian rules. Rules which are in the breach of the government's obligation to put the interests of the children first. Our Chief Executive, Satbir Singh is interviewed here explaining more about the campaign and why all families should be #TogetherAtChristmas   Hhttp://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/bringthemhome_uk_5a3e30e9e4b06d16…
