We have been asked to pass on advice regarding the EU Settlement Scheme.
EU citizens must now apply for the EU Settlement Scheme if they want to continue living in the UK after June 2021. Parents must apply for their children, even if they were born here, and have already applied for themselves.
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.
You can find out more about the scheme and where residents can find help at https://www.bristol.gov.uk/EUSettlement.
