Don’t push asylum seekers into deeper poverty

Most asylum seekers now have to survive on just £5 a day while waiting for a decision to be made on their asylum claim and they aren’t allowed to work to support themselves.

The Government is now considering what level of support to give asylum seekers in the next financial year.

We are asking for asylum seekers to get at least 70% of Income Support (accommodation and utility bills are paid) and no less than £45 a week for single adults.
