Ask your MP to scrap the Minimum Income Requirement


Families are being kept apart based on what they earn. We believe this is wrong - but we need your help to change these unfair rules

Any British person who earns less than £18,600 a year - a level far higher than the minimum wage - is not allowed to live in the UK with a partner from outside the European Economic Area (EEA).

That means hundreds of thousands of NHS staff, care workers, teaching assistants and social workers don’t earn enough to build a life here with a partner from outside the EEA.

What's more, we'll never know how many British citizens have been forced to leave the UK because the current rules say they don’t earn enough to build a life here with their partner.

These rules tear loving couples apart and have a devastating impact on children.

We believe that your right to love should never be based on what you earn.

It’s time to bring families together – and you can be part of making it happen.
