Free guide for young asylum seekers and refugees

The Citizenship Foundation has published a free illustrated guide for young asylum seekers and refugees aged 14-19, and those who support them.

Cover of Life and Law in Britain

'Life and Law in Britain: A guide for young asylum seekers and refugees' provides information to help young asylum seekers and refugees understand their rights and responsibilities in relation to everyday needs and provided support workers with a guide to everyday law, helping them to promote inclusion, literacy and legal understanding.

Authors Richard Jarvis and Tony Thorpe said “Settling into a new country is never without problems - particularly for those who have been forced to flee from home under difficult or dangerous circumstances. We hope that Life and Law in Britain will be a useful source of information for young asylum seekers and refugees and for those who support, or are responsible for, young people in this position.”

The guide covers education, safety, home, money, work, immigration, police and courts, and consumer, criminal, and immigration law.

Free copies are being sent during May to organisations working with young asylum seekers and refugees . Further free copies are available(excluding postage and packaging costs) by downloading an order form from www.citizenshipfoundation.org.uk/llb
