SOME FACTS ABOUT REFUGEES/ASYLUM SEEKERS

  • Thousands of asylum seekers wait years for a decision on their claim. Meaning they are left in limbo and unable to plan their futures. 
  • Asylum seekers are not allowed to work and are provided with just over £5-per-day from the government to cover the cost of their basic needs.
  • Unaccompanied children as young as under 13-years-old also seek protection in the UK.

FGM: The Extent of the Problem

Since 2011 in England, 170,000 women have experienced FGM, with a further 63,000 girls aged 0-13 also at risk of being exposed.  Whilst in England and Wales FGM is recognised as a hidden crime, there has never been a serious prosecution against parents or carers. This report indicates that Greater Manchester is a major hotspot for FGM in England specifically within the female asylum seeker population. An approximation of 16% of this group  are relocated in this region.  Read the full report here
