Support for asylum seekers

A council motion was passed in 2014 to raise awareness of the unfortunate situation of asylum seekers.

Asylum seekers can face extreme poverty, both as a result of the restrictions of the asylum process and the limitations of support available to them.

A report has been produced which summarises the support which is available for asylum seekers in the city.

One of the key aims of the report is to help local residents and organisations understand the context which frames the wide and varied experiences of asylum seekers and other migrants in the city.
