Who are refugees and asylum seekers?
Asylum seekers are people who come to the UK because they are unsafe in their home country.
Refugees are people who have had their asylum claims accepted by the UK government. They have the right to stay in the UK for up to 5 years. After that they can apply to stay in the UK indefinitely.
