IOM UK Launches COVID-19 Migrant Information Service
IOM UK has developed a Covid-19 Migrant Information Service to provide extra support to migrants in the challenging context of the Covid-19 crisis.
The information service includes:
- A multilingual website: www.covid19uk.iom.int.
- A telephone service: 0800 464 3380.
- Information to migrants living in the UK on five key topics: health, work, benefits, visas and immigration, housing and homelessness.
The website also provides a comprehensive overview of the various governmental and non-governmental support schemes that are available to migrants. Finally, it offers signposted information for users to get further information and/or begin the process of accessing support.
The website is currently available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Romanian, Arabic, Chinese, Albanian and Vietnamese, with Polish to be added soon. The telephone service provides information to callers in any language and is available on Freephone: 0800 464 3380.
