Accommodation for sanctuary seekers is a wide ranging issue and there are varying regional and local factors. 

Asylum seekers can apply for accommodation from the Home Office while they go through the asylum process. This is provided by private contractors (see the section below on ‘Dispersal’). If someone is granted leave to remain, they are given 28 days to leave their asylum accommodation and find private rented accommodation or apply through mainstream housing services (see the section on ‘Help for New Refugees’ under Information for Sanctuary Seekers).
