Raj and his family got leave to remain in November 2018 after making an application on Human Rights grounds in 2015.
They were living in a flat provided by the Home Office and didn’t know what their next steps should be. The Housing Team made a referral to the homeless casework service to get them started on the homeless route and support them through the process with advice and information. They also made a referral to Money Skills Project to get their benefits sorted out.
We were clueless! We have no family or community connections in Glasgow so it’s difficult to find out. At Positive Action in Housing we had someone to hear us and tell us what our options were. We feel confident now to make decisions and ask for your support when we need it - we feel settled. I’m starting my Access to Law course at University in September.
