What is the Refugee & Migrant Advice Service?
The Refugee & Migrant Advice Service is a new service to help people without immigration status in the UK to understand their options and make decisions about their next steps.
If you successfully apply to join the service, you will receive support from a support worker and access to a legal adviser to help you understand your options.
The service has been developed by King’s Arms Project and the Home Office, and is funded by the Home Office.
How does it work?
- Fill in the form at the bottom of this page if you would like to find out more about this service and have a conversation with one of our team.
- If, following that conversation, you would like to apply for support, our team can help you do this.
- If we accept your application, you will be assigned a support worker.
- Your support worker will help you to access local activities and services such as: health services, English classes and training opportunities.
- Your support worker will also arrange access to a legal adviser to help you understand your options. Your support worker will help you get your case file from the Home Office and will assist you by attending your legal appointments with you.
- If you have a possibility to stay in the UK and wish to, you can get help to apply.
- If the legal adviser says you don’t have an option to remain in the UK, your support worker will help you to decide your next steps, including considering voluntary return.
- You can choose to leave the Refugee & Migrant Advice Service at any time. If you stop going to your support worker appointments, your case with the Refugee & Migrant Advice Service will be closed.
- You will be expected to continue to report to the Home Office as normal.
