Updated Home Office guidance on permission to work and volunteer for asylum seekers

Updated Home Office guidance on permission to work and volunteer for asylum seekers

Changes since the last version of the guidance:

  • updated to include reference to criminality and delay when considering permission to work applications
  • improved guidance on applying for permission to work to provide clarity for claimants on what is expected
  • updated information about the difference between working for a voluntary organisation and volunteering to make clearer that asylum seekers are able to volunteer
  • new guidance template applied, and section and paragraph numbering removed in line with guidance requirements

The new section on volunteering is considerably clearer than the old version.
