New Campaigning Toolkit and online Resource for those at risk of removal

The National Coalition of Anti-Deportation campaigns has produced a new campaigning toolkit, a comprehensive printed and online resource for people at risk of removal, and the groups working to support them. The Toolkit aims to help migrants understand the asylum and immigration systems, to know their rights, and to be as well-equipped as possible to make a successful application. In the case of a refusal, the Toolkit aims to enable migrants to know what a campaign is, whether it’s right for them, and to be at the centre of the campaign and of all of the decisions made.

Part One sets out different ways of campaigning for the right to stay in the UK that may be useful in an individual campaign. The strategies could be used individually, or in combination. Some of the actions are public, others can be taken up in non-public campaigning. Much of the material contained in this part of the toolkit is based on the experiences of individual campaigns provided by supporters and partners of NCADC.

Part Two gives an explanation of the procedures for applying for asylum or immigration status and aims to help migrants and their supporters understand where they are in the system, what their rights are, and what might come next.

The toolkit is available as a hardcopy resource or can downloaded here. It’s free, but the NCADC asks that if you would like to help keep the toolkit frequently updated and to reach as wide as audience as possible, a suggested donation of £5 would be appreciated. To order a hard copy or to make a donation, you can find their contact details here.
