Call for home office to stop blocking children's rights
The Home Office has set a fee of £1012 for children to register as British. Many families cannot afford this and can lead to going further into destitution. The Home Office is profiting off of this and it needs reform. The Project for the Registration of Children as British Citizens has challenged the policy and there is a high court hearing at the end of November. You can read more by clicking on the PDF below.
