From July this year, EU nationals who haven’t completed their EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) will face losing their rights to live and work in the UK.

There are approximately 30,000 vulnerable and isolated EU citizens living in Newham who are 'at risk' of not applying in time. 

Who should apply:

Except in a few cases, you need to apply if:

  • you’re an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen
  • you’re not an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen but your family member is.

You need to apply even if you:

  • were born in the UK but are not a British citizen
  • have a UK ‘permanent residence document
  • are a family member of an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen who does not need to apply - including if they’re from Ireland
  • are an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen with a British citizen family member

Please note, if you have children, you still need to apply for them separately. Each child will need their own application.

Stay Settled in Newham

A consortium of Newham organisations and charities are behind a ‘Stay Settled in Newham’ campaign, encouraging those citizens who haven’t applied to do so and also to reach out should they need advice, support or guidance with their application.

The consortium includes:

  • The Renewal Programme
  • New Europeans
  • One Newham
  • East End Citizens Advice Bureau
  • HEALTOGETHER CIC
  • Roma Support Group
  • Shpresa Programme
  • Skills Enterprise
  • Work Rights Centre
  • Newham Council

EU citizens can get direct FREE advice from all of the above but are being encouraged to use the referral forms below.

Applications must be made on the Government website before 30th June 2021.
