RAIS has now received £1000 from the Urgent Response Fund to provide phone top-ups and mobile data for asylum seekers. Each individual, or each adult within a family, can apply for £20, either mobile data, or phone top-up, or split between the two.
How to apply:
Individuals and families can apply directly to RAIS by email giving their:
- full name
- NASS number or Port Reference number
- number of adults in family (for family applications)
- mobile phone number(s)
- provider(s) (e.g. 3, EE, O2 etc.)
- support required: phone top-up, data or both
Individuals and families can be referred by RAIS, Global Link or EMW. The referral must include all the information specified above.
Applications will be considered on a first come first served basis and each individual or family can only apply once.
The money will be transferred to their phones online.
