Destitution is an extreme state of poverty, in which a person is almost, if not completely lacking in resources or means of support.
How do asylum seekers become destitute?
Due to the continuous toughening of immigration policies over the last few years, the largest majority of the people claiming asylum in UK are refused refugee status. In practice this means that they are left without the right to work or claim benefits or any other support.
RMC offers FREE workshops, each lasting up to 2 hours and followed by online practice where it is wanted. We take the preparation one bite-sized piece at a time! All sessions are accompanied by notes.
We offer a Client Needs Assessment (CNAT) to all new clients. In particular this assesses their health needs and an action plan is negotiated to address those needs.
We support all clients in registering with GPs, dentist and opticians. Clients can access the various onsite screening clinics at RMC including: weekly HV, monthly latent TB and hepatitis. We host a weekly drop-in Health Visitor’s clinic and a mid-wife is always on call.
Open 9am – 5pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday
