Its never a good time to be homeless, but winter is particularly bad.

Yesterday we were able to provide homes for 4 people, keeping them safe and warm while they challenge flawed Home Office asylum refusals.

Thanks to all of our partners who help make this possible, including Restore, British Red Cross, The Refugee and Migrant Centre: Wolverhampton, Black Country & Birmingham, Refugee Action, Hope Into Action: Black Country, Entraide, Birch, Baobab, ASIRT, Birmingham Community Law Centre, Coventry Peace House. You are all wonderful.

Newman University awards one scholarship per year to an applicant (who has been offered a place to study, conditional or unconditional on an undergraduate programme here) from a forced migrant background who cannot access finance from Student Finance England because of their Home Office status.
The scholarship includes a full tuition fee waiver and bursary to one student per year who is:
• An asylum seeker / forced migrant or the partner/dependant of an asylum seeker / forced migrant; OR
• An asylum seeker/partner/dependant who has been granted Discretionary Leave to Remain (DLR) or some other form of temporary status



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.
