Baroness Lister meets Baobab young people

As the Government’s Anti-Refugee Nationality and Borders Bill makes its way to the House of Lords for a critical second reading, we were thrilled and honoured to meet Baroness Lister with eight of Baobab’s young people.

The Baroness listened to the personal stories of each and gave some very useful advice for Baobab to continue its influencing work. We are still fighting to get the most egregious provisions in the government’s bill – such as the distinction between refugees based on route of arrival – dropped from the bill entirely, and language reflecting our significant concerns about mental wellbeing of refugee children included in the bill.
