In the new report Vulnerable and Neglected - Asylum Seekers and Israel's Social Services (in Hebrew), ASSAF presents the current policy regarding social welfare services for vulnerable asylum seekers residing in Israel.

The report examines the gaps between the existing policy and the actual needs of vulnerable asylum seekers, and the inhibitions preventing full implementation of the above policy.

The report also presents recommendations for amendments. This report is based on data collected during the daily psychosocial care provided by ASSAF for vulnerable asylum seekers and the constant policy advocacy work that the organization performs.
