Slough Immigration Aid Unit (SIAU) is a charity giving specialist legal advice and representation in UK immigration, nationality and refugee law. SIAU is a registered charity and is regulated by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner.
We provide legal advice, assistance and representation to people who live, work or study in Slough and neighbouring areas, and their families, who have difficulties with UK immigration, nationality or refugee law. We also advise on the rights of EEA nationals and their families.
SIAU used to see people by appointment in our office, but since March 2020 we are only able to advise, or provide information, over the phone, or by email.
SIAU provides a free service to people on low income and who would have qualified financially for Legal Help (previously known as Legal Aid). Most immigration law matters were taken out of the scope of Legal Help in April 2013. Where people’s income or savings are too high to qualify for Legal Help, we work on a cost recovery basis, meaning we charge a fee to cover our costs for representation only; we do not make any profit. We do not charge for advice. We aim to provide a competent, well-informed and friendly service.
During the covid-19 pandemic and lockdown, SIAU's office is closed. We cannot go there or see people there or answer our office phone number. Please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org with queries, and give us your address and phone number, and we will get back to you. If it is impossible to email, please phone 0798 595 6757.
**** Remember that the deadline for EEA nationals and their families to apply under the EU Settlement Scheme is 30 June 2021. Apply in time from https://www.gov.uk/settled-status-eu-citizens-families/applying-for-settled-status or contact SIAU for advice.****
