Rainbow Migration’s submission to the Women and Equalities Committee’s Inquiry into equality and the UK asylum process

23/11/2021

The position for LGBTQI+ people seeking asylum in the UK has improved substantially since the 98-99% rejection rate referred to in the Call for Evidence for this inquiry. However, there remains room for improvement in all areas, including asylum accommodation, immigration detention, interpreters, Home Office interviewing and decision making, and the appeals process, as outlined in this submission.
