Abstract

This article is based on research commissioned by the Home Office Research and Planning Unit on the settlement of refugees in the UK (Carey‐Wood et al. 1995). The study was the first systematic national assessment of the experiences of non‐quota refugees or those who arrive in the UK before seeking asylum. The research entailed interviews with 263 refugees of different nationalities, resident in various locations throughout Britain. It was carried out in full consultation with refugee community groups and the major agencies dealing with refugees. The survey focused on the extent to which refugees had been successful in obtaining employment, using educational and training opportunities, and securing suitable accommodation. In addition, it explored the general problems refugees experience in adjusting to their new social and economic environment. This article will highlight and discuss the main findings of this study.
