Assistance for Asylum Seekers
Asylum seekers are foreign citizens waiting on a decision on whether they qualify as refugees. Most of them had to flee their country due to the horrors of war and/or persecution. DAR strives to give each of them a warm welcome and assistance with getting settled in the UK.
Learning the language
Unlike refugees, asylum seekers don't have access to government-funded language courses. DAR provides language tuition to enable them to start communicating.
Understanding the system
Asylum seekers are often unaware of the steps to access public services such as health and education. We assist them with this or signpost them to other services that can help.
Asylum seekers seldom know anyone else when they reach the North East. All of DAR events also aim to bring people together in a friendly and welcoming environment.
