Refugee integration loan
You can use integration loans to buy items that will help you integrate into the UK. They must be paid back, but they’re interest-free. You can borrow between £100 and £1,000.
You can use the loan for things like:
- housing deposits
- work clothing and equipment
- education and training.
You can apply if you’ve been granted refugee status or humanitarian protection or are dependent upon someone who has.
