Many Asylum Seekers are left with no means of support and no right to work in order to support themselves, for long periods of time. Although many people still have legal routes to pursue, life becomes a daily struggle for survival. Home4U Cardiff provides a period of housing, subsistence and practical support to allow their residents to focus on their legal cases and to get some respite from the grind of destitution.
