Fact sheets for Afghan citizens seeking asylum in the UK:
Please note that due to the Coronavirus, many agencies, services and activities either closed or changed their services due to government guidelines. Restrictions are gradually being lifted and more services will be opening up over the coming months. Refugee Cardiff is therefore currently being updated and you will continue to see the site change to reflect availability of services.
If you or someone you are supporting need help and can't find the answer on this site, please email email@example.com and we will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible.
Thank you for your patience.
