Only one month left to apply to the EU settlement scheme

EU residents and their family members are being urged to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme in time for the deadline of 30 June 2021. The scheme allows EU citizens to gain immigration status so they can continue to live, work and study in the UK.

Front-line social care staff from the County Council will be supporting members of the community by signposting them to organisations who can assist with the application process. Please phone 0300 500 80 80 (Mon-Fri 8am-6pm) if you need support.

Derek Higton, Service Director at Nottinghamshire County Council, said: “All EU residents and their family members who were living in the UK by 31 December 2020 will have to apply to the scheme. We will be helping people with their application process and also completing applications for looked-after children.

“It’s vital that people meet this deadline in one month’s time so they can continue to access public services such as healthcare and schools.”

Phone 0300 500 80 80 (Mon-Fri 8am-6pm) if you need support with your application.
