Bradford City Council's Housing Team includes a Housing Access Officer whose role is to assist newcomers (including asylum seekers and refugees). The Council also has an Immigration and Asylum Unit, which provides support to people "without recourse to public funds".
Bradford also cooperates with the private sector and the civil society; Bevan Healthcare, for example, is a social enterprise that provides a range of health services to refugees and asylum seekers. Bradford City Council has also developed a welcome information package for newcomers, which is currently being updated. The University of Bradford and Bradford College both support newly arrived international students and Bradford College also provides specialist and quality support for unaccompanied minor students. Unaccompanied children under guardianship or in foster care can also rely on a 'virtual school' to provide them with individualised support.
