The Home Office issues an information leaflet to asylum claimants at the point of claim which outlines the asylum process and the claimant’s responsibilities within that process. This information leaflet is periodically reviewed.

Independent guidance and advice is also available to asylum claimants provided by Migrant Help. Migrant Help are present in initial accommodation that destitute asylum seekers are initially housed in and their services can also be accessed via their website or by phone.

In the safeguarding strategy that the Government published in November 2017, we committed to producing a leaflet for unaccompanied asylum seeking children about their rights, their entitlements and the asylum process. This leaflet will be provided to unaccompanied asylum seeking children at the point of claim and will also be made available online.
