Employment


In the UK, persons seeking asylum are not permitted to work while they wait for a decision on their case. If you have no independent means of supporting yourself and would otherwise be destitute, people claiming asylum should qualify for Section 95 support from the Home Office, which consists of a set amount of money per week and accommodation provided on a no-choice basis.

After your asylum claim has been determined and you have been given leave to remain in the UK, you will be able to access employment. You will need a National Insurance Number to give to your employer.

If your Immigration decision confirms that you do not have access to public funds or employment, please seek advice from Migrant Help UK

If you are in receipt of Universal Credit, you can speak to your Job Coach at the Job Centre about possible employment opportunities and training courses.
