Extern's Refugee Floating Support Service offers support and advice to individuals and families who have been granted refugee status and who have been given leave to remain in the UK.

Operating since 2013, the project works intensively with refugees during the 28-day notice period given to move out of NASS (National Asylum Support Service) accommodation, and provides medium to long term specialist and practical support and advice to resettle in the community.

This ongoing intensive, comprehensive one-to-one support includes, but is not limited to:

  • housing
  • benefits
  • financial and budgetary management
  • health
  • education
  • legal status
  • training and employment
  • family reunification
  • community integration

The service aims to prevent homelessness and to maintain tenancies by directly supporting individuals who have housing issues and practical problems settling in the local community.

Extern’s Refugee Floating Support Service work across the community and has existing networks with a range of other refugee and asylum support organisations.

The team actively participates in the Migrant Forum, the Refugee and Asylum Forum and the Northern Ireland Asylum Stakeholders’ Forum.
