Solidarity Fund

One of the key principles of These Walls Must Fall is that the voices and views of people directly affected by detention must be at the centre of campaigning. Organisers, based at Right to Remain, are supporting groups of experts-by-experience to learn, develop, teach, share and use skills to lead local campaigning.

Most of the experts-by-experience campaigners are barred from working. Many live on asylum support of just £5 a day. Some have no money at all, surviving through friends and charities.

To stay in touch online, to keep organising and campaigning, people need money for data packages, phone credit and a smartphone or laptop.
