ASSIST Sheffield

Summary
ASSIST Sheffield helps destitute asylum seekers by providing accommodation, advice and other support to those in most need or distress.


Description

We're a charity and we're totally reliant on volunteers, grants and the generosity of the people of Sheffield and the surrounding area.

At ASSIST Sheffield we support some of the most vulnerable people living in Sheffield - people who have been unsuccessful in their applications for asylum and as a result have been made destitute. Many of them have escaped the unimaginable horrors of war, violence and persecution, but simply telling the truth about the conditions they have fled sadly isn't always enough.

Without refugee status asylum seekers are not allowed to work. Once their initial application for asylum has been turned down many are left with no right to housing, benefits or other vital support. They're left homeless, destitute and vulnerable on the streets of our city.

This is where we come in. ASSIST is an invaluable lifeline for failed asylum seekers in Sheffield, offering solidarity, support and hope in the form of accommodation, advice and access to essential services.
