Our general enquiry form is closed. 

If your enquiry is urgent, please follow the links on our website or go to our Sources of Information page to find other organisations that could assist you. If you have an immediate deadline or issue and cannot find alternative support, please call our phoneline on 07856632796 between 10am-12pm on Monday or Thursday.

Hackney Migrant Centre runs an advice service providing immigration and housing advice alongside wellbeing support.

We welcome all migrants. It doesn’t matter what your immigration status, nationality or current place of residence is. But, we only have a small staff team and can only help a few people, so we must first help migrants who are destitute, homeless or on a low income. If this does not apply to you, we are still happy to give you information or tell you about other organisations that might help you.

Please note, we do not accept referrals from external organisations. The form must be completed by the visitor (help can be provided to complete the form). 

If you have a GENERAL immigration or housing issue, please complete the GENERAL ENQUIRY FORM below:


If you need assistance with RENEWING YOUR LEAVE TO REMAIN, if your VISA IS EXPIRING, please use the LEAVE RENEWAL FORM below. This is open on a rolling basis, subject to team capacity. If we have capacity to assist, we will get in contact. Submitting an enquiry does not guarantee a response or support from Hackney Migrant Centre:

                                                          SUBMIT LEAVE RENEWAL ENQUIRY FORM

We will use the information that you provide in this form to decide if we can help you. If we can help you, we will contact you with an appointment time to come and see us. At the first appointment you will talk to a volunteer about what you need help with. Then we will let you know if we have a staff member to help you with your immigration or housing problem. If we do, we will book another appointment for you on a different day. On the day of your appointment, you can join us for a free hot lunch, which will be served between 12:00pm and 1:00pm.

If your enquiry is not advice-related, please send us a message via the Contact Us page.
