The Department also provides information to all asylum seekers, including direct telephone numbers to local and national UKVI staff where they can raise issues about the condition of their accommodation. As a result of recent improvements to the Home Office inspection regime the Contract Compliance Team measures service delivery via a short questionnaire to assess the level of contact, welcome briefing and support from the provider.</p><p>We are taking further steps to ensure asylum seekers’ voices are heard so that they feel confident to report complaints about their accommodation or any concerns they are having about their safety. To help achieve this, an advisory Board has been established which will enable the Home Office to discuss accommodation related issues with key NGO stakeholders, including those that pertain to issues raised regarding accommodation in Glasgow.</p>
