EU citizens and their family members living in the UK can apply to the Government's EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS), which will allow them to continue to live, work and study here in the UK after June 2021.
It will mean that after the UK leaves the EU, they will continue to be eligible for:
- public services, such as healthcare and schools
- public funds and pensions.
The scheme is open and it's free to apply. The deadline for applying to the scheme is 31 December 2020 if there is no Brexit deal or 30 June 2021 if there is a Brexit deal.
Supporting vulnerable people to complete EU settlement scheme applications
Our overseas visitors team can offer support to vulnerable or at-risk EU citizens and their family members (including non-EU citizens) to complete their EU Settlement Scheme applications.
Vulnerable or at-risk individuals include:
- people who are homeless/rough sleepers
- people with disabilities and/or serious health conditions (eg physical or mental impairments)
- the elderly
- young adults who have left care
- children in care
- Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities
- victims of modern slavery and/or trafficking
- victims of domestic abuse.
Our overseas visitors team are keen to hear from staff and the public both across the Trust and in the community who look after vulnerable individuals and want to support them and their families in the EUSS application process.
If you think you know of anyone who meets the above criteria and who might need help with applying please use our referral form (Word 49Kb) to refer them to our overseas visitors team.
