If you have recently been granted refugee status, the Home Office (NASS) support you may have been receiving will generally end within 28 days. As soon as you are notified of your refugee status you should act quickly to ensure that you access any required mainstream support through the Department of Work and Pensions, Local Authorities, etc.
If you live in London, the Refugee Council runs an advice service for newly recognised refugees who are homeless or at risk of destitution.
What we offer
To discuss the issues you might be encountering or to make an appointment, please contact us.
We can advise new refugees on issues relating to:
- Immigration documentation
- Welfare rights
- Access to health services
Who it's for
You can access this service if you have:
- Received refugee status within the last 6 months
How to access this service
Contact us at the details above. This is strictly an appointment based service only that is based in Stratford, East London. Unfortunately we cannot deal with drop-in clients. We have far more demand than we can meet so currently prioritise those in most need.
