Asylum seekers and refugees

All non-UK nationals are required to provide documentation to show they have a right to live in the UK.

Non-UK nationals looking for permanent rehousing from social landlords in Wheatley Group should register for a home in the same way as other customers.

A support service provided by Wheatley Care, part of Wheatley Group, provides support to homeless customers, including refugees.

We have a number of forums, including Polish and West African housing forums, which offer customers advice and support with tenancy issues affecting their ethnic group. Our migrant support advisor can help re-house new refugees.

We support the Glasgow Refugee, Asylum and Migration Network. This body conducts research and evaluation on migration, refugees and the asylum process. The network consults on migration-related policy in the UK and internationally.

We also work closely with The Scottish Refugee Council and support its Holistic Integration Service.

Support is also available from Positive Action in Housing - an independent, anti-racist, homelessness and human rights charity dedicated to supporting women, children and men from refugee and migrant backgrounds to rebuild their lives.
