What support for undocumented people during the COVID-19 pandemic? – An overview

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all of us in our daily lives. However, different communities have been impacted in different ways. For undocumented people, one of the most marginalised communities in Europe, the pandemic and the lockdown measures have exacerbated pre-existing conditions of social exclusion and deprivation.
