DASH provides support mainly to destitute asylum seekers. these groups do not have access to main public funds and no support from the home office. DASH provides accommodation mainly through its hosting scheme. We also provide limited casework assistance but signpost and refer clients to relevant social services, immigration solicitors and other services. Our work is in Huddersfield but clients from Bradford, Dewsbury and Halifax also come for assiatance and support.
