Newham Mayor writes open letter about unsuitable accommodation provided by NASS and Clearsprings

Copyright: Laura Dodsworth. One Room Lockdown.

We are incredibly grateful to Rokhsana Fiaz Mayor of Newham for listening to our mums who are living in unsuitable National Asylum Seeker accommodation.

The quality of this accommodation has – for a long time been very poor. Issues include frequent infestations, damp, material degradation, and a lack of adequate safety measures such as fire door, fire exits etc.

This is bad at the best of time but during the pandemic and lockdown – as other families were moved in to self contained accommodation to reduce the risk of infection and to safeguard families by making sure they can socially distance from other families our asylum seeking mothers and children were left – sometimes 4 to one room in a shared house – to cope.

We are incredibly grateful to the Mayor for listening to our mothers and writing an open letter on the issue to the Home Office.

Here it is in its entirety.
