Our advice service is run with the help of our volunteers and professional advisers. At their Wednesday face-to-face appointment, migrants receive initial immigration, housing and welfare advice; as well as advice on accessing a GP and dealing with charges for hospital care. After the advice session we work further with callers to resolve the problems facing them.
We welcome all migrants, regardless of immigration status, nationality or current place of residence.
- To provide advice and assistance to migrants on immigration, welfare or health issues
- To offer a welcoming environment to migrants and help reduce social isolation
- To publicise issues relating to migrants’ social and economic circumstances
“They listen to you, they give you advice, and introduce you to people who are going to help you with your issue. After that they kept referring me to different groups and that was so helpful”Visitor to Hackney Migrant Centre in 2018
