EU Settlement Scheme

INTRODUCTION: SUPPORTING EU COMMUNITIES

EU citizens and their family members who want to stay in the UK beyond 31 December 2020 will need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme. This allows them to get a new UK immigration status that will protect their rights in the UK once the UK leaves the EU.
The Home Office is putting in place a series of arrangements to accommodate the diverse needs of EU citizens who will require support. To ensure support is available, we want to enable community leaders to play a vital role in supporting vulnerable or at-risk communities. We are doing this by providing guidance, a suite of communication materials and regular engagement activity for community leaders. We are also providing grant funding for eligible voluntary and community sector organisations.
To support you in raising awareness and delivering activities around the EU Settlement Scheme, we have created a community leaders and local authorities toolkit to provide accurate, timely and accessible communication materials for your use and to share with vulnerable or at-risk communities. Further details on the materials available are provided in this pack. You can also find these on GOV.UK.
