EU Settlement Scheme – 50 days left to apply
All EU, EEA and Swiss citizens and their family members who were resident in the UK by 31 December 2020, should apply without delay at www.gov.uk/eusettlementscheme so they can continue to work, study, and access free healthcare and benefits in the UK after 30 June 2021. If you need advice and support Ealing Law Centre, Hammersmith and Fulham Law Centre and West London Equality Centre are here to help , information about our services is available at https://ealinglawcentre.org.uk/eu-settlement-scheme/
Please note that the following government guidance;
- If an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen and their family members have lived in the UK for many years or have a permanent residence document or EEA Biometric Residence Card (BRC), they still need to apply to the EUSS (or apply for British Citizenship) by 30 June 2021 to continue to live and work in the UK.
- An application must be made for every eligible child within a family. Parents should apply on behalf of their children, even if they have already applied and been granted a status themselves.
- Eligible close family members living overseas can apply to join an EU, EEA or Swiss family member who started living in the UK by 31 December 2020. They can apply to come to the UK at any point. More information on joining family members can be found on GOV.UK.
- Those who have successfully applied to the EUSS can access their pre-settled or settled status online, update their personal details, and get a ‘share code’ to provide their status to others at www.gov.uk/view-prove-immigration-status.

“The support I received was really useful and it was the only place where I actually got clear answers to my query. All the people that have spoken to me here have been extremely knowledgeable and have asked the right questions for my situation. It has been a very positive and enlightening experience. No other service I went to could give me the answers or even show that they had done research into the issue. Thank you to everyone, you were the only ones who could give me answers, it’s great that a charity is doing this and giving advice.”
