Grant Type: Destitution
While Dariush was waiting for his asylum claim to be processed, he received accommodation and cash support from the Home Office. However, the post office where he collected his weekly support was relocated. Consequently, delays and administrative errors left Dariush facing a week without access to money. Thanks to RST, Dariush received a destitution grant to bridge the gap between reporting the problem with his support and the problem being resolved.
Dariush has recently been granted refugee status and is currently in the transition period from Home Office support to Job Seeker’s Allowance.
