Asylum Team at Newcastle City Council
From March 2020
- telephone and email support and advice
Local Authority Asylum Seeker Liaison Officers (LAASLOs) support people through the asylum process. They work with you to create a support plan to help with:
- immigration issues
- learning English language
- accessing health and education services
- debt advice
- training and employment
- family reunification
- getting involved in your community: your rights and responsibilities, volunteering, and social and leisure activities
They support the ‘move on’ process if you are granted refugee status or leave to remain.
They offer advice and signposting if you are refused asylum.
Referrals can be made by email or phone
