Reuniting families affected by UK spouse visa rules

Valentine’s 2021 Campaign

Reunite Families UK is a campaign and support group set up by two Mums affected by the Minimum Income Requirement (MIR).  Spending special dates with your loved one, such as birthdays, Christmas and Valentines Day should not be so difficult.  However when you fall in love with a Non-EU and now with Brexit EU citizen, being together is not as easy as we are led to believe.  As you can see the time never stops ticking for our families who have to spend sometimes years apart to be reunited.  We believe families belong together.

An idea inspired by Thia Malan, previously affected by the rules; RFUK and JCWI are teaming up to do a #haveaheart campaign this Valentine’s Day to raise awareness of the MIR. You can do your bit in the run-up to Valentine’s Day this year by taking part in the #HaveAHeart challenge. The idea is simple: get creative and make a heart shape (suggestions below), and share it on social media, asking people to write to their local MP and make much-needed change happen.
