I have refugee status in the UK
Housing and financial advice for Refugees
When you are granted asylum in the UK (Refugee Status, Humanitarian Protection, Discretionary Leave to Remain or Indefinite Leave to Remain), you will need to think about and plan a number of changes to your life including financial changes and housing support.
Working, reuniting with your family, and applying for citizenship
There will also be many new opportunities available to you: when you receive status, you have the right to work and open a bank account. You may also apply to be reunited with your family in Scotland, and eventually apply for British citizenship.
