Testimonies from Asylum Seekers and Refugees in the North East Region

On the impact of not being allowed to work

Click on any of the links below to read testimonies from our Subgroup members. Each them contains the voices of different people, from different countries of origin. But they all share the experience of exile, and all are now living in the North East and sharing the same experience of the UK asylum system, which doesn’t allow them to work whilst their asylum claim is being determined or they cannot return home.
