Asylum support applicants need to prove they are destitute. Destitution is defined in regulations. We will be looking at the more complex cases, which are likely to lead to further inquiries from the Home Office and a refusal of support. These are cases where a person has had assets in the past, or may still be in a position to access assets. Participants will learn how best to prepare their clients’ applications and anticipate pitfalls.
This training is a top up session for those who have a good knowledge of the asylum support system. It examines in detail definition of destitution in relation to asylum support applications.
