Support for EU nationals

Free legal advice

Islington In Europe works in collaboration with Islington Council and two local immigration law firms – Wilson Solicitors LLP and Wesley Gryk Solicitors LLP – to provide free legal advice to national from other EU countries concerned about their rights and future in the UK.

Our tenth free legal advice session takes place on Monday 24 May 2021, with little over a month until the settled status deadline. Register here.

Testimonials:

‘Thank you so much – this is the best information I received having attended several similar sessions organised by other organisations – your choice of lawyers was excellent.’

‘I’d like to say a big thank you to Islington Council, Islington In Europe and the panel of immigration lawyers from Wilson Solicitors and Wesley Gryk Solicitors. The Home Office has now granted me indefinite leave to remain – a big worry off my chest.’

‘I’d like to repeat my thanks to Islington in Europe for providing practical and moral support to those of us who call this place and this country ‘home’, despite efforts from governmental quarters to create a ‘hostile environment’.’
