Not accepting new referrals until 26/04/2022.

These individuals often find themselves destitute with money problems, no employment, problems with immigration and housing. At Asylum Aid we have advisers who speak community languages and so are able to give advice and support to Survivors in their own language. People can call us or come to one of our drop-in sessions. The focus of Asylum Aid's welfare advice team is on migrant, refugees and vulnerable communities.
