Asylum seekers: Further information

For further details about the support available to asylum seekers including information about housing, education, health and employment, visit the UK Visas and Immigration information on asylum support on the Gov.UK website.

As this is a very complex area of the law, it is important to seek specialist advice. You can use our Find an Adviser tool to find a local adviser to help you further.

The Refugee Council (link opens in a new window), a charity that works with asylum seekers and refugees, may also be able to advise further.
