The report draws on specific, practical examples of the use of support and engagement in the asylum process, to show what a different type of asylum system might look like. It is also rooted in the views and opinions of women who have been or are going through the UK asylum system. The voices of asylum-seeking and refugee women have always been at the heart of Women for Refugee Women’s work, and we believe it is crucial that their experiences of the asylum system, and opinions on how it should be reformed, are heard.
