We are committed to fully support all of our claimants through our managed migration processes, which we are working with stakeholders to co-design to ensure that they work for the most vulnerable.

There are many reasons why someone could be vulnerable or in need of additional support, and we work hard to ensure that the support we provide for each claimant is tailored specifically to their circumstances, making individual assessments of the help that each claimant needs.
