Moving to London: a practical companion for Irish people
The purpose of this document is to provide essential information on housing, employment, assessing health services, banking, transport, claiming benefits, and general life in London so you can plan your move properly. Every effort was made to ensure that all information was accurate at the time of writing. However, the first rule of giving good advice is that information should be taken from source material and, so, this booklet provides links to organisations that develop policy and set rates, such as the Department of Work and Pensions, Transport for London, and letting and employment agencies.
Hopefully, the booklet is a useful starting point that will point you in the right direction. If you require more detailed information we recommend that you contact these agencies or advice services, such as the London Irish Centre’s advice service, directly.
