The EU Settlement Scheme: Status of European Nationals living in the UK
If you are an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, you and your family members will need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) to continue living in the UK.
You will need to complete a short online application form with three key steps:
- Prove your identity
- Show that you live in the UK
- Declare any criminal convictions
Would you find it challenging to apply online? Do you know people who are too vulnerable to do it by themselves? Are you concerned about what happens if you have a criminal conviction? What if you struggle to provide evidence of residency, don’t speak or read English or have a complicated family situation? Yourself, or colleagues friends & families you know may need assistance to get the immigration status needed to continue to live, work or study in the UK, and be eligible for public services and public funds.
The Home Office is working with a range of local organisations to make sure the EUSS is accessible to all and capable of handling vulnerable applicants with flexibility and sensitivity.
A small team of engagement and case officers, based within Citizens Advice BCP, Citizens Advice in Dorset and Dorset Race Equality Council are here to help, inform and more importantly provide support to anyone who is finding any aspect of the application challenging.
Time may be running short. It is best to confirm your status now. If you know of any European nationals within your networks and communities who may need advice and help in their application, do not hesitate to raise awareness of the scheme and of the free help available.
If you need FREE help or advice with your EUSS application, please contact Citizens Advice BCP
