Asylum seekers - advice and support

Accommodation and financial support to asylum seekers is provided by the National Asylum Support Service (NASS).

For information please visit their website - National Asylum Support Service.

The London Advice Services Alliance (LASA) website offering advice and information in 10 community languages has now gone live.

The internet may have transformed access to information for millions of people, yet millions more remain excluded because they don't speak the right language.

Lasa's Multikulti website is an attempt to close that gap, creating one site that provides good, regularly updated advice on matters important to the main non-English speaking communities in the UK.

The website contains translations of leaflets in 10 community languages covering 6 key areas:

  • immigrations and asylum
  • welfare benefits
  • employment
  • housing
  • health
  • debt

These have been translated into the following languages: Albanian, Bengali, Chinese, Farsi, French, Gujerati, Somali, Spanish and Turkish. For more information look on the MultiKulti website or phone tel: 0207 247 7226
