Asylum Seekers often become destitute when they reach a break in the Asylum process, for instance if they have been refused and have to submit further evidence to the Home Office.
When this happens their ‘National Asylum Seeker Support’ (financial support and accommodation) will cease. Since Asylum Seekers are not allowed to work, they become completely destitute.
With proper legal representation, Asylum Seekers can often go on to resolve these issues.
Sharedydd supports the hosting of destitute Asylum Seekers in spare rooms in and around Cardiff. We provide advice and practical support to clients and hosts. Being hosted allows our clients to focus on their legal cases, rather than on basic survival.
Volunteering- Sharedydd’s ‘Link Workers’ keep in contact with each client and their hosts to help maintain the hosting relationship. Link Workers also provide practical support and information to clients. Training, shadowing and ongoing support is given to all volunteers.
