EU Settlement Scheme – deadline 30th June!

As you may know, the deadline for EU nationals to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme is next week, on 30 June.

 Due to Brexit, EU citizens must apply for the EU Settlement Scheme if they want to continue living in the UK after June 2021. Even if they have lived in the UK most of their lives. EU nationals who have lived continuously in the UK for five years or more should be entitled to settled status, meaning they are free to go on living in the UK indefinitely.

If those needing to apply miss the deadline, they may lose their existing rights, like living and working here, access to free health care, and benefits.

Please help us to get the message out to your staff, colleagues and networks so that EU community are able to stay living, working and studying here.

You could share this tweet , or one of our EUSS posts on Facebook, Instagram or linked in. I have attached our digital slide poster for you to print or share digitally, and please do include in your next newsletter or on your intranets.
