Are you affected by the UK's family division rules?

Do you have children?

Please make your voice heard! Contribute to the Children's Commissioner's survey.
The Office of the Children's Commissioners is following up on the concerns and issues by all of the campaigning over the last couple of years.

The OCC is conducting research on the impact of the rules on children with a view to, in the Children's Commissioner for England's words, 'achieve a just settlement for families who are, or who will be, divided by the implementation of these rules.'

If you're affected by family migration rules, have children, and have a few moments, please complete the survey :

Full instructions on where to send the survey to - as well as a letter from the Children's Commissioner for England herself, and interesting reading on the background to this and the work of the OCC - are in the links above.

* The Children's Commissioners for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are the voice of the child in government. They have spoken out on the issue before, and wish to follow this up further. Please help them achieve this.

The Children's Commissioners' briefing on the APPG on Migration 'Report of the Inquiry into the New Family Migration Rules' is both excellent and devastating. Read it here :
