Where to get support with your citizenship application?

For assistance applying for UK citizenship you will need an appointment for our advice session on a Tuesday at 129 Princess Road, Moss side, M14 4RB. 

To book an appointment please email Alex at with your name, number and details that you would like to apply for citizenship or a passport.

Please note: Unless people cancel appointments, we often have a long waiting list so you may have to wait up to 2 months for a citizenship appointment. This is because as far as we aware we are one of the only organisations providing support with citizenship in Manchester. We also limit the number of citizenship appointments we provide per week as it is not a priority service compared to other immigration applications and support.
