Petition Remove citizenship fees for people born in the UK and from long term residents.
Without citizenship, individuals cannot fully participate in the life of our nation and may not feel fully at home. We ask you to remove fees for those
1. born in the UK or arrived in the UK as Children
2. resident in the UK for 15+ years.
This would be good for the individuals and for society.
It is wrong that long term residents of the UK can be denied citizenship solely due to their financial situation. This is particularly damaging for young people who as a result can't afford to continue their education and develop rewarding careers.
It is also very important at this time to reduce the climate of fear that has developed due to the Brexit vote and to re-affirm the intention of the UK to behave in a way that is welcoming, safe and fair towards its immigrant populations.
