Without refugee status asylum seekers are not allowed to work. Once their initial application for asylum has been turned down many are left with no right to housing, benefits or other vital support. They're left homeless, destitute and vulnerable on the streets of our city.
This is where we come in. ASSIST is an invaluable lifeline for refused asylum seekers in Sheffield, offering solidarity, support and hope in the form of accommodation, advice and access to essential services.
