‘A Guide to the Hostile Environment’ from Liberty outlines policies in different areas eg. schools, health, employment, what your rights are and where you can get help.

Refugee Home is a website by and for refugees with lots of helpful information including the asylum and immigration,  housing, work, benefits and health care.
