The Home Office is working to transform the broken asylum system and processes: the work will simplify, streamline and digitise processes, ensuring that genuine asylum claimants are treated quickly, fairly and are supported; and those who do not qualify are rapidly identified and prepared for return.

As part of this programme of work, the Home Office is working collaboratively with HMCTS on their ambitious programme of court reform.
