In 1999, Lucy* lost her passport. She knew that without it, she couldn’t get a job, couldn’t pay her taxes and couldn’t get help from the government. So she contacted the Home Office. But they said they had no record of her. How could that be? She thought. I have been here since I was 9 years old. I am part of the Windrush generation. Over 20 years later, Lucy is almost 60 years old and has battled homelessness, alcoholism, violence and abuse. At the same time, she fought to regain her passport. She tirelessly lobbied her MPs, Prime Ministers and even spoke on Channel 4 news.
With help from LRMN, she finally received her British passport. We also helped her access housing, further studies and counselling which she described as “life saving help”. Lucy is passionate about her studies and is determined to achieve her dreams of becoming a carer. And we will continue to help her along the way there.
