Course Overview When receiving Leave to Remain status, refugees commonly become homeless. With demand for housing high, it can be difficult to prove that individuals have a priority need for accommodation. Yet many single refugees suffer from mental and physical health conditions that make them more vulnerable. If this vulnerability is exacerbated by being homeless, councils may have a duty to house them. Our one-day course, Making Homelessness Applications for Single Refugees, is designed and delivered by experienced practitioners with extensive up-to-date working knowledge and practical experience of this subject matter.
