Latest Update – New Phone Lines in Operation
Due to Coronavirus, Haringey Migrant Support Centre is not running drop-in sessions and our office building is closed. HMSC staff and volunteers continue to work over the phone and online to provide support on immigration, housing and welfare issues.
HMSC operates two new telephone lines on Thursdays for people to speak to us and get support.
New Enquiries Line – Thursdays from 10 am : 020 4566 7412
If you are a new visitor/client (you have never been to HMSC) or if you are an existing visitor with a totally new issue, please call our New Enquiries Line on Thursdays at 10am.
The line opens at 10am and closes each week when all the slots are filled. This is first come-first served booking system – if you have an urgent issue, you need to call at 10am. If we cannot take your call, please try again the following Thursday.
Because of limited resources, we will not reply to new enquiries by email or telephone outside of this line and there is no way to leave a message on this line.
We will take only basic details from you at this stage. We will start working on your case the following Monday.
Capacity is limited, so we will prioritise those who are destitute or on a very low income, and those who cannot afford to access advice elsewhere. We cannot help British citizens.
Catch-up Line – Thursdays 12pm to 2pm: 020 4566 7445
If you are an existing visitor (you already have a file open with HMSC for this issue), please call our Catch-up Line, on Thursdays from 12pm to 2pm.
We may ask you for some information to find your file and help you.
Many thanks for your understanding.
