This report considers the impact of extending the "move-on" period (currently 28 days) which is allowed to refugees, once they are awarded Leave to Remain in the UK. This question arises for those refugees who were in receipt of Section 95 subsistence and accommodation grants from the Home Office at the point of being granted refugee status. The move-on period allows for the continuation of Section 95 support for 28 days, with the aim that work and/or mainstream benefits can be secured, and alternative accommodation arranged, by the time this support is stopped.
