Support for asylum seekers and refugees

Welcome Newham: One-Stop Shop

In partnership with the voluntary and community sector, we have launched regular one-stop shops. The weekly one-stop shops provide an opportunity to access a number of different service offerings to help establish a life in Newham. These are drop-in sessions so people can attend anytime throughout the events - there is no need to RSVP. 

The following in person assistance will be provided at the one-stop shop: 

  • Help with GP registration
  • Universal Credit queries
  • Housing costs and child benefit queries 
  • School admissions support
  • Homelessness support 
  • BRP guidance
  • ESOL registration 
  • Job seeking assistance 
  • Affordability assessments for private rented sector (PRS) accommodation
  • Tenancy sustainment support

The one-stop shop will be taking place at Stratford Library - 3 The Grove, E15 1EL every Thursday 10am to 2pm.

On the first Thursday of every month there will be a focus on employability and employment support. The last Thursday of every month we will be hosting workshops on finding accommodation in the PRS.

We look forward to seeing you there.
