Many South Asian students are struggling in UK during this pandemic. A helpline has been launched to support international students.
We are receiving calls daily from students asking for help with food, accommodation support and jobs. We have a designated team who are currently helping students with accessing funds from their university. We are also helping with job searches, CV writing, food parcels, accommodation support, rent issues, feminine hygiene, and stress management. We are working closely with the local council to raise any exploitation concerns.
We have had reports where students are getting very little pay after working long hours. We are trying to find jobs for students where they get the appropriate minimum wage. We are also helping students with free legal advise .
If you know of any students who can benefit from our services please ask them to get in touch on our emergency line or fill out and return our international referral form.
