Situation

The difficulties faced by asylum seekers when they arrive in Exeter. Often they do not have accommodation or any financial means and do not know how to access support while they are waiting for their case to be resolved or their appeal to be considered.

Solution

At Refugee Support Devon, we can help asylum seekers with making applications for financial support and for emergency accommodation. We can also help asylum seekers to access other services so that they can apply for permission to work.
