Asylum is the protection given to a person who is fleeing persecution in their own country. To be recognised as a refugee, you must have left your country and be unable to go back because you have a well-founded fear of persecution. Or where there is a real risk that you will be exposed to torture, or inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
If you or someone you care about has a difficulty of this type, do not delay. Call a FIRSTIMMIGRATION team member now for a consultation with an experienced immigration solicitor. Help is at hand
If you do not qualify for asylum but the Secretary of State thinks that there are humanitarian or other reasons why the Home Office should allow you to stay in the United Kingdom, then you may be given temporary permission to remain.
Every person has the right to make an application for asylum.
Unaccompanied children may also apply for asylum and, in view of their potential vulnerability, particular priority and care is given by the Home Office to the handling of their cases. Close attention will be given to the welfare of the child.
