Support for Asylum-seekers and other Migrants is the only handbook focusing exclusively on the welfare and legal rights of asylum-seekers. It has now been expanded to cover the welfare needs of other migrants, in particular refused asylum-seekers at the end of the process and EU nationals. Note: now includes EU nationals' entitlements.

Those working in this complex area of law, often faced with desperate, vulnerable clients, have to quickly assess their rights across a wide range of areas from housing and welfare benefits to social services and NHS provision.

Support for Asylum-seekers and other Migrants presents the law in an accessible and practical way for quick reference or in-depth advice. It is up to date to include all the relevant domestic, European and international legislation and case-law, with eligibility tables and hints for dealing with difficult cases.

The extensive appendices contain extracts from UK and EU legislation, UKBA documents, contact details for one-stop services, an outline of education rights and a comprehensive section on resources and useful organisations.

Up to date to include:-

  • Borders, Citizenship and Immigration Act 2009
  • Latest decisions affecting EU nationals
