Hope's work providing housing and legal advice to homeless and destitute asylum seekers in Birmingham has brought us up against the worst of the Home Office 'hostile environment'. The Windrush scandal has brought this into much wider public view - the one positive in such a short story.

Projects

Hope Destitution Fund

Hope provides cash grants of £20 per week for up to 6 months for people left destitute while challenging flawed refusals of asylum. People are usually staying in Hope Housing, with friends or family, or with other charities.

Hope Housing

We have 10 houses in Birmingham and the Black Country that are home to 29 people left homeless and destitute while challenging flawed refusals of asylum. We usually house people for up to 6 months. Hope pays all fuel bills, council tax and water rates.

Hope Peer Support

Well Being is central to the Hope approach. Our housing support staff and volunteers make sure that people are safe and able to make friends and connections in their own neighbourhoods. We also run a women’s group and a peer support group for people fighting flawed refusals of asylum.

Hope Legal

We make sure that everyone in our housing has high quality legal advice. Where we cannot get legal aid, Hope’s own legal expert provides advice and representation.
