Support for refugees, asylum seekers and migrant workers
As a young person coming to the UK your rights and entitlements will depend on whether you have entered the country with your family or unaccompanied.
The National Asylum Support Service (NASS) automatically supports families with children/young people under the age of 18. However if you are an 'unaccompanied child' (meaning under 18 years of age), then you come under the responsibility of Suffolk County Council Refugee Social Care Team.
Refugee Council One Stop Service
The Refugee Council One Stop Service exists to help asylum seekers in Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex, Cambridge, Bedfordshire, and Hertfordshire.
