UK: Nigerian woman faces destitution over missing passport!

A Nigerian woman who has been in the UK since she was 10 was housed in a hotel in Southwark during the lockdown after becoming destitute in 2018, because the Home office had reportedly informed her there was no evidence of her status on file after she lost her passport.
The woman, who was working in the UK and has two British citizen children, aged 12 and 21, had previously tried to claim universal credit and housing support, but as she no longer had her passport, was told that she needed to provide evidence of status. Southwark Law Centre is now applying to regularise her status.
