About Hackney Migrant Centre

What we do

Hackney Migrant Centre was established in 2008 by local people and community organisations, to provide advice and support for migrants in Hackney and surrounding areas, irrespective of their immigration status. We work with in-house and external advisors to provide professional advice on immigration, welfare and housing and our team of dedicated volunteers welcome visitors, help them access health and other services. Volunteers also cook and serve a delicious meal each week.  Our service specialises in supporting migrants who have few other sources of support and people with complex cases, including victims of trafficking and human rights abuses; survivors of gender-based violence; undocumented people; refused asylum seekers; and those who are homeless or facing destitution.

The charity’s objectives are:

1. To relieve the needs of migrants, especially those whose immigration status is precarious, irregular and/or temporary, through the provision of legal and other advice and advocacy.

2. To relieve financial hardship and destitution among migrants, especially those whose immigration status is precarious, irregular and/or temporary, through the provision of legal and other advice, advocacy and support.

3. To preserve and protect the physical and mental health of migrants, especially those whose immigration status is precarious, irregular and/or temporary, by providing advice and advocacy to assist them to access health and other relevant services.

Over the last year, HMC continued to operate remotely due to the Covid-19 pandemic, delivering a weekly Remote Advice Service and ongoing casework support as well as providing material and practical support to some of our most destitute visitors.
