Survey Introduction

This survey is in response to a parliamentary call for evidence on families divided by the Covid-19 pandemic.
As a campaigning group, Reunite Families UK is in regular contact with families who have experienced various degrees of division by the UK immigration system, ranging from months to years, with relationships conducted largely 'online'. As such, this group of people is uniquely placed to predict the long-term effects on families who experience similar conditions as a result of the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic.

All responses will be kept in strictest confidence.
