Know Your Rights – A Guide for Migrants

Today, MRN and partners are releasing Know Your Rights – A Guide for Migrants. The guide aims to help migrants understand their rights and how to assert them in 8 key areas of everyday life: banking, driving, education, employment, health, housing, social services, and the detention and deportation of homeless EU nationals.

The guide has been written for all migrants living in the UK. It will be particularly useful for people without documents and those trying to regularise their immigration status, including asylum seekers. We have aimed to make the guide comprehensive and informative, as well as easy to use, including by people for whom English is a second language. 

The guide has been written in collaboration with:


  • Against Borders for Children
  • Doctors of the World UK
  • Focus on Labour Exploitation (FLEX)
  • Liberty
  • Migrants at Work
  • Migrants’ Rights Network (MRN)
  • Open Rights Group
  • Project 17
  • Victim Support
  • Welsh Refugee Council
  • The Unity Project
