Please read our response to the Home Office's review of asylum support rates for 2018.  Some of our recommendations include:

  • Asylum support rates should be set at the minimum of 70% of current income support levels 
  • Higher than lower rates for section 95 and Section 4 support to match Sure Start Maternity Grants rates
  • Travel and communication rates should be considered essential.
  • People seeking asylum should be given the right to work.
  • The Move On period following receipt of refugee status should be extended from 28 to56 days.
