Thangam Debbonaire speaking at an event in Parliament in support of refugees.

Refugees are people who have been displaced from their country due to war, persecution, or natural disaster. Since I was elected one of my priorities is to make sure the UK is taking in its share of refugees and adequately supporting them when they are here.

I currently chair the All Party Parliamentary Group on Refugees and am campaigning for legal changes in line with the recommendations made by the APPG’s Refugees Welcome? Inquiry. These include English language classes, access to the labour market, better support for people when their refugee status is confirmed and legal changes to help child refugees join family members in the UK.
