The Asylum Support Appeals Project (ASAP) is a small national charity working in the area of asylum support law to reduce the destitution of asylum seekers by defending their legal rights to food and shelter. We represent some of the most vulnerable and poorest people in the UK, many of whom are unable to return to their home countries, are denied work in the UK and are prevented from accessing support. Since its official launch in June 2004, ASAP has developed an entirely new approach to many of the issues surrounding housing and welfare support for asylum seekers using our legal expertise and evidence-based policy and lobbying work.


We operate by running an advocacy scheme at the Asylum Support Tribunal, through training, an advice line, and policy work such as producing research reports and lobbying.
