Volunteers wanted to help asylum seekers navigate Home Office procedures (September 2022)

Every asylum seeker must make a formal application to the Home Office for refugee status. Volunteers can give a helping hand to guide people through the process and help asylum seekers use the multi-language toolkit www.righttoremain.org.uk

 

We don’t give legal advice, but understanding the process and having good information is essential to a successful asylum claim. Please get in touch at penrithandedenrefugeenetwork@gmail.com if you want to find out more. We’re a supportive group, training is available and your involvement can be in many ways from helping someone understand a letter through to getting accredited as a legal adviser.
