ASAP has been providing representation, advice and advocacy on asylum support matters for over 10 years. As one of the UK’s leading asylum support charities, we are uniquely placed to provide expert training to frontline organisations. All our trainers have experience of representing at the Asylum Support Tribunal, which allows them to provide expert advice and training.
We offer a range of training packages to cater to your services skills and requirements. If your organisation requires bespoke training on any aspects of asylum support law, please contact Claire Tindale at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Recently, we have provided training to advisors who work at the British Red Cross, UKLGIG, Refugee Action (Liverpool), Asylum Link, the Refugee Council, Coventry Refugee & Migrant Centre, Praxis, Welsh Refugee Council, Kent Refugee Help and many others. Here are a few quotes from recent participants:
“[The most useful thing was to learn that] there are still appeal opportunities within section 57 and 55 cases. Helpful just going through each stage of the appeals process, burden of proof”, Bristol Refugee Rights, Appeals Webinar, April 2017
"It was interesting to learn about the destitution threshold and impact of evident vulnerability in decision making”, Destitution Webinar, June 2017
“It covered many legal issues about the asylum support and enlights this issue by case-studying and working as groups. Discussing it from legal points. The trainer was so helpful and clear”, Hull, September 2017
