New way of providing subsistence support?

The Home Office are currently piloting a new system of providing financial support via an ‘aspen’ card.

The card will work like a debit card, allowing supported people to use a pin number to get cash from ATMs and buy food in any shop that accepts debit cards.

The card will be used for asylum seekers on Section 95 support and refused asylum seekers on Section 4 support, but those on Section 4 will not be able to get cash.
