Providing advice and support for EU Citizens living in North West London who need help making applications under the European Union Settlement Scheme.

Ealing Law Centre, West London Equality Centre and Hammersmith and Fulham Law Centre are pleased to announce the continuation of services for supporting vulnerable EU, EEA or Swiss citizens and their close family members to secure status under the EU Settlement Scheme. Our work is supported by Home Office grant-funding until 31st March 2021.

Our services will include practical support to vulnerable EU, EEA and Swiss citizens and assistance to make applications under the EU Settlement Scheme.

  • Having settled or pre-settled status allows those living here by 31st December 2020 to stay here after the UK has moved beyond the transition period in relation to the EU.
  • Current deadline for applications is 30th June 2021.
  • Unless exceptional circumstances apply, EU/EEA and Swiss citizens risk becoming overstayers and are encouraged to apply before the deadline.

We are in a position to assist with remaining applications, ID checks and clarifying status before the deadline.

This service is designed for individuals and immediate family members who are struggling to apply for status under the EU Settlement Scheme or have difficulty using the EU Exit: ID app for reasons such as disability, including mental health issues, age including care home residence, being in care or a care leaver, difficulties relating to domestic abuse, modern slavery or trafficking, isolation, homelessness or being in transient accommodation. 

Some of the issues in these cases may be more complex than they seem, and require further investigation and advice. These issues can include uncertainty about nationality, refusal of status under the EU Settlement scheme, criminal convictions, situations where ID or evidence of residence is not easily obtainable, where the applicant cares for an EU or UK child, or are a vulnerable family member.

Advice is available for complex and non-complex cases.
