ASYLUM ALLOWANCE: CAN YOU SURVIVE FOR FOUR WEEKS?

You are seeking asylum in the UK and receive a weekly government allowance of £37.75, around £5 a day, while your asylum claim is assessed. You are not permitted to work and this sum must cover all of your food, clothing, household, travel, phone and personal needs.

Will this allow you to survive for four weeks?
