Weʼre raising £2,000 to Get Craig Murtagh a British passport and prove he's British
- Liverpool, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Craig was born in 1991 in Liverpool (United kingdom)
However his mother was born in Yugoslavia and his father was not included on his birth certificate.
This currently means that Craig is stateless and is not classed as a British citizen due to government legislation.
He has not been abroad and has lived in the U.K for 27 years of his life and is finding it very difficult to obtain status as a British citizen.
He cannot obtain it through naturalisation due to a historic conviction which prevents him from applying for naturalisation because it states that the applicant has to be of good character.
He has tried all avenues of trying to obtain a passport unsuccessfully however he has not spoken to an immigration solicitor regarding the issue.
The fees for most solicitors are really expensive and he cannot afford them and is stuck in this country.
Any small donation will help Craig's cause in obtaining British nationality and also so that he has the right of passage too and from countries.

About the fundraiser
So I've known Craig since 2008 and would class him as family. Craig is restricted on where he can go and that shouldn't be the case in modern day society and common sense should prevail. However this isn't the case and he needs all the help and support he can get. Thank you.
