You will be at the forefront of analysing and reacting to emerging asylum support issues affecting destitute asylum-seekers; with the potential for generating significant positive change for this group through contributing to ASAP’s policy work and leading on strategic litigation. You will develop and share ASAP’s unrivalled expertise in this area by contributing to and overseeing the quality of our legal information and training for our volunteers, staff and front-line advisors around the UK.
