Joye Rosenstiel speaking in policy for the future debate:image

Ending child detention was one of most successfully implemented policies in 2010-15 period, and we can be proud of that.
The challenge now is to build on this policy making Britain into a warm, generous and open nation.
We need to work for implementing of the recommendations of the All Party Parliamentary Group chaired by Sarah Teather to see the end of indefinite detention.
We need to Ensure all seeking sanctuary coming to UK are treated with compassion and dignity.
They need the right to work to give them the dignity they need.
We must make sure that those who are given right to remain for 2 years at the age of 16, are not, when aged 18, having to go through the trauma of having to reapply to stay in the UK and have constant worry about being removed back to the dangerous countries they fled from for safety.
