IOM UK provides immigration advice and casework support to vulnerable migrants to regularise their immigration status and maintain their residency rights within the United Kingdom.
We work in close partnership with local authorities, strategic migration partnerships, and third-sector organisations to reach and support those most at risk, including looked after children and care-leavers, people who are homeless and rough sleeping, survivors of human trafficking and modern slavery, and survivors of domestic abuse.
Since 2019, IOM UK has led a consortium of partners to reach over 31,000 vulnerable individuals with information on the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS), and provided immigration advice and casework to support over 8,000 vulnerable individuals to access the EUSS.
In partnership with the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA), IOM UK is supporting the Scottish Government’s Ending Destitution Together Strategy. We support local authorities across Scotland assisting people with No Recourse to Public Funds by increasing access to specialist immigration advice for vulnerable groups and complex cases to help address the barriers that vulnerable people who are destitute, or at-risk of destitution face, as well as raising awareness, building local capacity and strengthening local service design.
IOM UK is an Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) Level 3 Immigration and Asylum organisation.
