Our drop-in service at the Huddersfield Mission remains CLOSED in line with UK Government guidance.
We are experiencing high demand for our services and we may not be able to get to your case as quickly as we would like. We ask you for your patience during this time.
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.
