An Information and Support Service
Our drop-in service can help with a wide range of issues, for example we have lots of information about other local organisations, we can explain how to access other services, help to fill in forms, support to make or cancel appointments, help with issues around living in the UK, provide help in the case of destitution or hardship. If we can’t help directly we will always try and find the most appropriate organisation to refer you to.
Immigration Advice (level 1) on Immigration, Asylum and Protection issues
Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) Registration no N201800009
We can help with a range of regulated immigration advice and home office applications at level 1. We can also help with applying for exceptional case funding for legal aid and referral to higher level immigration advisors or solicitors.
We are sorry but we are unable to offer immigration advice to EU nationals or their family.
