Refugees and asylum seekers
Asylum seekers are not normally eligible for housing and council tax benefit. Asylum seekers who have had their applications for asylum accepted are granted refugee status and become entitled to benefit in the normal way from the date their refugee status is confirmed.
However the rules concerning other people from abroad are complex and entitlement depends upon their circumstances. For further advice please email email@example.com or visit one of our offices.
Shelter, the housing and homeless charity, provide housing advice for asylum seekers and refugees.
