People who claim asylum in the UK are prohibited from working or claiming mainstream benefits. Many of the asylum seekers GMIAU represents rely on a small amount of cash and accommodation provided on a no-choice basis by the Home Office – this is called Section 95 support. People who have their asylum claim refused may have access to limited, cash-less support known as Section 4. GMIAU provides support, advocacy and advice for asylum seekers who need support to avoid becoming homeless and destitute. We believe that no one should be destitute as a result of their immigration status.
