About Us

Integration Support Services was founded in May 2004. Since then, we've helped thousands of migrants, refugees, asylum seekers and BME community members identify and overcome several barriers to integration.


ISS was established by a group of migrants who had personally experienced difficulties after moving to the UK. The founders wanted to help others who had trouble accessing local services and making the most of new opportunities. Originally a community group, ISS became a registered charity in 2007, allowing us to diversify our work. 


Though based in Harlow, we work with service users from across Essex, Hertfordshire and surrounding areas. We are able to deliver advice sessions on a range of issues. We also provide affordable immigration advice and English courses. In addition, we host several social activities and trips throughout the year. Please visit Our Work for more details.

We value effective communication and aim to assist everyone who approaches us for help. We are accredited by the matrix Standard (our accreditation number is C12081). We hold ourselves to the Standard in every aspect of our work.

Working with Partners

We are always keen to work with partners, whether this involves sharing resources or establishing new opportunities for our service users. In some cases, we are also able to provide tailored training courses, such as immigration training. Please contact our office on 01279 639442 for more information.
