A guide has been launched in France to help facilitate the lives of refugees who have been granted asylum there.

The guide offers information on the practicalities of living in France and has been produced in French, Russian, English and Arabic.

As the first of its kind to appear in the country, it was made in collaboration with refugees and is available on the internet.

The guide, which covers important subjects including identity papers, learning French, housing, health and employment can be downloaded onto mobile phones and 1,500 printed copies will be distributed across the country.
