EU Settlement/Temporary Immigration Status

As you may know the UK is leaving the European Union. If you’re an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, you and your family can apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to remain in the UK after 30th June 2021. This will protect your right to live, work and study in the UK. Any families or individuals who currently have temporary immigration status and do not apply to the EU settlement scheme by 21st June will have No Recourse to Public Funds, which may severely impact your right to claim financial support and housing. Please check whether you need to apply to the scheme. Even if you have been in the UK for a long time, are married, or have a residence permit you still need to apply. If you are not an EU citizen but have family members who are, then you might need to apply too. You can apply via this link https://www.gov.uk/settled-status-eu-citizens-families/applying-for-settledstatus. It is free to apply to the scheme. If you would like any support with immigration advice and the application process, please contact Kirklees Law Centre: Tel: 0344 848 7970, or alternatively contact our Inclusion Teacher, Sarah Perrin on 01484 646888 who will signpost you to support.
