Brexit – free help to apply for EU Settlement

About the EU Settlement Scheme

The UK has left the EU. The purpose of the EU Settlement Scheme is to help EU, EEA and Swiss Citizens (including family members and dependants) to continue living and working in the UK after Brexit and to access vital public services like the NHS and welfare benefits. The deadline for the EU Settlement Scheme deadline was 30th June 2021.

If you are an EU/EEA/Swiss national or their family member, including those who have permanent residency or a EEA Biometric Residence Card (BRC) and were in the UK by 31st December 2020 and haven’t made an application, your rights in the UK are not protected. 

Citizens Advice Hounslow offers free support to vulnerable Individuals to make late applications to the EU Settlement Scheme and receive settled or pre-settled status in the UK. If you live in the borough of Hounslow or Ealing, we can help you.
