Corporate & Social Responsibility

We are dedicated to making a difference

At Immigration Advice Service (IAS) we are committed to making a difference to the world around us. Community support and voluntary support are a huge part of what we do and alongside our commissioned services we also provide Legal Aid and charity services.

At IAS, we are committed to providing quality immigration support for everyone, irrespective of their gender, sexuality, race, religion or social background.  We are also dedicated to working towards environmental goals as a company and reducing our environmental impact.

If you would like to speak to us about our community, social and environmental commitments, get in touch with us, we would be happy to discuss them with you in further detail.

Making a difference

Making a difference

At IAS, we believe in making a tangible difference to our local communities. To do this we involve ourselves in community and social projects, with community groups, religious organizations and local citizens advice centers.

Some of our help has involved organizing talks and volunteering in our local communities. One key example was the free immigration advice we offered to all those who were directly impacted by the Windrush scandal.

We are also working closely with many local MP’s who need support with immigration issues and advice in their local areas.

We are committed to offering support to vulnerable groups and individuals and, as such, engage in voluntary work alongside our commercial duties.

Diversity in the workplace

We are dedicated to promoting diversity and equality in our workplace, as well as in the world around us. This policy has meant that IAS has a very diverse working environment; with a team made up of members of different nationality and background who, between them, can speak over 30 languages.

At IAS, we pride ourselves on creating an open and equal environment, in which everyone feels supported.

Environmental commitments

We work to keep our corporate carbon footprint to a minimum and have instilled the following policies to help us do this:

  • We receive instructions from clients by email, phone or Skype when they are not in easy-range of one of our office
  • We encourage our staff to use public transport wherever possible
  • We have developed a work-from-home scheme for our staff members

By implementing these policies, we aim to reduce our combined CO2 emissions significantly.
