1. Overview

You may be able to get housing and money to support you and your family while you’re waiting to find out if you’ll be given asylum.

This also means your children will go to a free state school and you’ll get free healthcare from the National Health Service (NHS).

You can still apply for short-term support if you’ve been refused asylum.
