New Plan for Immigration

By | Consultations | No Comments

Deadline 6th May

The New Plan for Immigration has the following three objectives:

  1. To increase the fairness and efficacy of our system so that Government can better protect and support those in genuine need of asylum
  2. To deter illegal entry into the UK, thereby breaking the business model of criminal trafficking networks and protecting the lives of those they endanger
  3. To remove more easily from the UK those with no right to be here

This policy statement is accompanied by an engagement and consultation process that will run for 6 weeks from 24 March 2021.

The Home Office want to hear a wide range of views and perspectives, from stakeholders and members of the public. To achieve this, they invite you to register and participate in their online questionnaire to provide your views. You will be able to provide views on proposals for:

  1. Protecting those fleeing persecution, oppression and tyranny
  2. Ending anomalies, and delivering fairness in British Nationality Law
  3. Reforming the asylum system
  4. Streamlining asylum claims and appeals
  5. Supporting victims of modern slavery
  6. Disrupting criminal networks behind people smuggling
  7. Enforcing removals, including foreign national offenders

Keeping People Who Are Autistic And/Or Have ADHD Connected

By | Local News | No Comments

Many people with a learning disability and/or autism will become increasingly vulnerable during the current Covid-19 crisis. In response to this, the new “Keeping People with a Learning Disability and/or Autism Connected” project has been launched, focusing on people who already lead independent lives but do not routinely access services or support. It is co-ordinated by Inclusion North, Humber Transforming Care, and Choices & Rights Disability Coalition (CARDC). 

Along with colleagues at Matthew’s Hub, Autism Plus, Healthwatch North Lincolnshire and Cloverfield Advocacy, CARDC will offer support with any practical issues, and continue helping to access support and gain whatever information, advice, and resources are needed. Anyone who contacts the service, will receive calls/texts/emails from specialist staff, who will support them with understanding information relating to Coronavirus, talk through their worries and offer some reassurance. If a person is in crisis CARDC are able to refer to the appropriate service with their consent.

If the person consents and would prefer to be contacted by CARDC, please email their details to CARDC. They will be given options for their preferred method of communication at initial contact; and follow-up contact can be made if needed. Even if you are not sure if a person has Autism, ADHD or a Learning disability, but it’s clear they are feeling isolated and in need of help, please encourage them to use this new, free service for anyone aged 18 or over who lives in Hull, the East Riding or North Lincolnshire.
