I am a bilingual community interpreter who work alongside various vulnerable refugees, I understand the importance of this petition for isolated, abandoned and lonely migrants and refugees. Lets hope this happen shortly and wish every single refugee accommodation offers a free WiFi to its residents.✌️爛

I think it is important for all asylum seekers and their children, especially for doing school homeworks.

Access to the internet is crucial for Refugee and Asylum Seeker families who face so many barriers to achievement .It’s vital now during the Coronavirus crisis and I ‘m sure it will be afterwards.

We are a group of young refugees and asylum seekers aged 15-24. We all have our own reasons for signing this. We believe people at Mears Housing should get free Wi-Fi because:
• “Asylum seekers have no income because not allowed to work, can’t afford to buy data by themselves”
• “They don’t have money to buy Wi-Fi it’s not easy to buy data when you also have to buy food. Some young people have the phone but don’t have the connection. It’s a big big problem. They have friends and family in other countries and need connection to speak with them. I have friends I haven’t seen in real life for 3/4 years. When you have the connection, you can get all the info about the world’. When I come to this country, I learn how to cook from YouTube. You need to have connection. Anything you need, you look at YouTube’. When you not have connection, you not have eyes”
• “Very important that everyone has connection. Young people cannot protect themselves in this situation; how to stay well in Covid 19. We have nothing to do at home and we can get melancholy. Without Wi-Fi, we cannot understand what’s going on in our own country to protect their health. Wi-Fi is really expensive and money they get they need for food.”
• “When someone not able to get connection, they not able to join this group. When you have symptoms, and you have connection, you can check how to protect yourself.”
• “It’s important thing to meet people and be meet your family outside and to buy stuff online”
• “It’s good because if you want to learn things”

Mears Housing Group need to be held accountable for the condition of their properties. The Home Office need to be held accountable for awarding them the contract. During this Lockdown, the tenants need extra support and WiFi Internet would help.

It is immoral and completely unacceptable to fail to provide a basic amenity (Wi-Fi) at any time and especially so during ‘lockdown’. Mears, do the right thing. It’s not good enough right now!

I have been asking for this from the days of G4S, but has always fallen on deaf ears
