STAR RATING: 5/5
Written by a highly respected legal team, this is a comprehensive work, writes Ashling Sans.
It explains the complex fields of entitlements for benefits, services and housing, from arrival and asylum application to the grant or refusal of refugee status. It also provides full information on the procedure for challenging negative eligibility decisions: from requesting a review by a local authority of a homelessness decision, to providing a checklist for making an application
for judicial review regarding asylum support. This book is essential for asylum support workers and immigration law practitioners.
