If a member of the public needs specific support in relation to migration?

People who are subject to immigration conditions can be very vulnerable to cost of living struggles. 

If someone has no recourse to public funds it is important to remember that they can access some support - free school meals and Household Support Fund are available to people in these circumstances and this should be explored.

Coventry has a wide range of organisations that provide support for Refugees and Newly Arrived Communities.

Central England Law Centre offer specialist legal advice and representation to people seeking to regularise their immigration status and can support people to understand and access their right. Tel 024 7622 3053.
