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.

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 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’.”
