Asylum Seekers are people who flee their home country and seek refuge in another, possibly because of war or human rights abuses.
Asylum Seekers are not allowed to take up employment while their applications are being processed, but they are encouraged to do voluntary work.
The agency responsible for addressing issues of Asylum Seeker and Refugee settlement in England is called National Asylum Seekers Services (NASS).
You may be able to get housing and money to support you and your family while you’re waiting to find out if you’ll be given asylum. For more information please visit the asylum page on Gov.uk
