Free webinars offer advice on the EU Settlement Scheme

The first of two free webinar events advising EU citizens on how to apply to live and work in the UK will take place on Wednesday 16 June between 1pm-2pm.

It will be followed by a second webinar on Thursday 24 June which will also take place 1pm-2pm. To access the webinars, use the links above or email [email protected] for support.

With just two weeks left to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme before the deadline expires on Wednesday 30 June, the webinars are part of a package of support that is being offered to EU citizens.

To find out if you need to apply, visit the UK Government’s EU Settlement Scheme webpage. If you are eligible, remember that each member of your family must complete an application, including children and anyone under the age of 21.

Vulnerable residents can get help with their applications, and the website also offers links to free, independent and confidential support from a range of community partners such as Citizens Advice, Mind Cymru, Newfields Law, Settled and TGP Cymru.

The settlement scheme, which is part of the UK’s new post-Brexit immigration system, is designed to offer citizens of the 27 EU member states the right to keep living and working in the UK. The scheme is also available to citizens of Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein.

All EU, EEA and Swiss citizens and their family members who were resident in the UK by 31 December 2020 are urged to apply without delay.

Applications are free, but they must be submitted by the deadline of 30 June 2021. More information is available at the council website.
