Currently, Government funding for services for resettled refugees comes through the EU’s Asylum, Migration and Immigration Fund (AMIF), and with a no-deal Brexit threatened, that funding would have been stopped. After 27,000 people signed the letter in just a week, the Government announced it would reverse plans to cut refugee services in the event of no deal. Thank you to everyone who signed the letter.
