Mary's story, single mum to four children in Glasgow

Mary talks about her experience of the asylum system, the racism she and her children have faced, and getting support from OPFS.

"If somebody knocked your door you would be afraid the Home Office was coming to get you. When you go out, you will hear stories of people who are just taken, so it was very scary."
