1. Overview

You can apply for a refugee integration loan to pay for:

  • a rent deposit or rent
  • household items
  • education and training for work

You must be over 18 and either:

  • a refugee or you’ve been given humanitarian protection
  • a dependant of a refugee or someone who’s been given humanitarian protection
  • allowed to enter or stay under either of the above after 11 June 2007

The smallest amount you can borrow is £100.

Integration loans are interest-free - you only pay back what you borrow, but you must make regular payments.

Contact your local Jobcentre Plus before applying for this loan to see if you can get help with training, education, work, living or childcare costs - you may be able to get this help for free.
