- ‘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.’
- ‘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’.’
- ‘Thank you – not just for me but for the rest of fellow European citizens – for your help and for showing us that we can still count on people that stay on the best side of British tradition, where you are always able to find help and support, even against the odds.’
