Pathways Project

At this time we are no longer accepting new enquiries due to very high demand for our services.

Our generalist advice line is still here for you on 0808 278 7896, 9-4:30pm Monday to Friday.

Our drop-in service at the Huddersfield Mission remains CLOSED in line with UK Government guidance. 

We are experiencing a lot of demand for assistance with Citizenship applications. We have a waiting list of people who need help with this matter. We are sorry that we cannot be any faster but we have high demand and limited resources.

 What is the Pathways Project?

The Pathways Project exists to deliver free information and advice to refugees and asylum seekers.  It is run by both paid workers and volunteers.  We can help you if you are a refugee or asylum seeker, have humanitarian protection, have Discretionary Leave, are an EEA citizen, or are someone wishing to make a family or private life claim.

Please note that we can only give advice and information. We cannot undertake ongoing casework or work on behalf of clients – this is because of demand for our services and limited resources.

How to Contact Pathways

Our drop-in service at the Huddersfield Mission is currently closed in line with UK Government guidance.  Please call the advice line (0808 278 7896, Mon-Fri 9am – 4:30pm) and one of the team will take some details from you.  Pathways will then call you back as soon as possible but please note we are no longer accepting new enquiries.
