Asylum Seekers' Mobile Phones seized by Immigration Enforcement
Several cases have recently come to light where asylum seekers in hotels have had their phones seized by Immigration Enforcement Officers on the grounds that they may contain information about immigration offences.
The Jubilee+ Refugee Network (formerly R2C2, the Refugee Resource Centre for Churches), was set up as a partner project between Jubilee+ and the Boaz Trust to fill a gap in resourcing churches across the country involved in this vital work.
Now embedded within Jubilee+, our vision is to see churches increasingly playing a major role in welcoming, loving and supporting refugees and asylum seekers in the UK, both through practical action and as a voice for justice, so they can integrate, flourish and play a full part in society.
This website, and our growing network of partners, has been set up to facilitate churches and individual Christians (of all denominations) to work effectively towards that vision.
