Move Asylum Seekers out of Direct Provision centres

Move Asylum Seekers out of Direct Provision centres

Urgently move people living in Direct Provision centres to accommodation where they can live with dignity and safety.
Right now people seeing asylum are at high risk of contracting Covid19 because of the inhumane conditions in Direct Provision centres.

Why is this important?

People including small children are living in overcrowded rooms, with no privacy or space for self-isolation.
The spread of Covid19 is very high in congregated settings and the treatment of people seeking asylum is inhumane.
This is a public health and human rights issue and urgent action is needed.
People seeking asylum need to be in self-contained accommodation where families can live together and people do not have to share with non-family members.
