Make London a safe city for migrant survivors

Make London a safe city for migrant survivors by: 

  • Commissioning specialist support for survivors with no recourse to public funds so they are not forced to choose between abuse or destitution, including wholly funded places with allocations for immigration support and intensive resettlement support;  

  • Immediately halting data sharing between the Metropolitan Police Service and the Home Office on victims of VAWG in line with the recommendation made by the report of Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services, the College of Policing and the Independent Office for Police Conduct1, so that migrant women can be confident they can report VAWG without fear of immigration enforcement; and 

  • Publicising the fact across London and translated to support survivors from all communities to report abuse and to deter perpetrators from using anyone’s insecure immigration status as a mechanism of control.
