Citizens Advice Cornwall has shared the following important information that may affect any EU, EEA and Swiss nationals and their (non-) EU family members who may work, reside, study, or use services within your organisation.

You may be aware that as a result of Brexit, such nationals need to apply for settled or pre-settled status in order to continue living in the UK after 30 June 2021.  

In order to secure their residency status, they need to have been resident in the UK on/by 31 December 2020 and must submit their application to the Home Office EU Settlement scheme (EUSS). 

Without obtaining settled or pre-settled status, they might not be able to work, study or live in the UK or have access to NHS treatment, benefits and other services after 30 June 2021. 

Citizens Advice Cornwall has a dedicated EU Settlement scheme team to help anyone who may find it difficult to apply independently or simply needs some advice. Our services are free of charge.

The deadline for EU, EEA and Swiss nationals to secure their settled or pre-settled status in the UK is approaching fast, so please help us to reach out to those who may struggle to apply.  

Should you have any further EU Settlement scheme related questions, please send an email to EUSS@citizensadvicecornwall.org.uk, call on 03333 440061 or text ADVICE EUSS to 78866 and they will call you back.  

Thank you for your cooperation!
