Rights & restrictions

Introduction

Recent developments in asylum and immigration law and policy mean that asylum seekers, refugees and migrants face increasing restrictions in many areas of their life in the UK. These restrictions can impact on their ability to access, for example, accommodation, education and healthcare.  It is important that those supporting asylum seekers, refugees and migrants are aware of the relevant restrictions and rights to enable them to assist people navigating the immigration system in the UK to access their rights and to support the challenging of restrictions when appropriate.
