Baobab Centre for Young Survivors in Exile – Surviving violence, creating hope, rebuilding lives


Info for young people

Information about the UK asylum system

The UK asylum system can be very challenging to understand and navigate. At the Baobab Centre you will be given support by our dedicated casework team to help you in your interactions with the Home Office, your solicitor, and the court system.

At Baobab we do not provide legal advice – you will need a legal representative to help prepare your case. But we will help as best we can so you understand the UK asylum law and your rights better. We will also assist you and your lawyer with fresh claims and appeals.

If you need detailed support with your case, please discuss it first with your key worker and your lawyer.
