A 'move on' service is available from Migrant Help once you get a positive decision on your asylum application. They will contact you. If you have not been contacted seven days after getting your letter from the Home Office telling you the date your support will end, please contact the Strategic Cohesion and Migration Manager.
When you get a positive decision and have received your biometric residency permit (BRP), you will have 28 days to leave your Mears accommodation. Mears will be in touch with you about this and you should get a telephone call from Migrant Help asking if you need support during the 'move on' period. This means it's very important that you keep your contact details up to date with your Mears housing manager.
Other things you will need to think about if you get a positive decision are:
- opening a bank account
- claiming benefits and Universal Credit
- English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) courses to help you learn English
- Ethnic Minority Achievement Team (EMAT) to help your children get into school and do well there
- Further education - for example, college and university
- employability (improving your skills, getting training, and finding and applying for jobs)
