The aim of the article is to present legal and institutional solutions to support and help refugees in Poland after 1989. The article presents the rights and obligations of foreigners who have been granted refugee status or, in the case of persons who do not meet the conditions for granting refugee status, subsidiary protection. The system of support and protection of foreigners in Poland is shaped on the basis of international, EU and national law. Foreigners with international protection may receive: social, medical, material and integration assistance. The article characterizes each type of assistance that foreigners who have been granted international protection can count on. Today, Poland is increasingly becoming a destination for immigration and foreigners seeking shelter. As a consequence, the question arises – is the system of support and assistance for refugees in Poland sufficient? As indicated by the adopted solutions in this regard, in many areas such as material or integration assistance, the adopted solutions are insufficient.
