Seeing the difference in our clients, seeing how they change as you give them the information, how they take control of their asylum claim, it's been incredible to see."

What is an Asylum Guide?
Asylum Guides are trained volunteers, matched up with asylum-seekers to provide trusted information about the asylum process. Over the course of a few meetings, they explain the asylum system in a way that is accessible and easy to understand.
What's our ambition?
Ensure that every person seeking asylum in the UK is matched with a volunteer Asylum Guide. We are supporting organisations to pilot their own programmes to allow many more amazing people to become Asylum Guides.
