Home Office- EU Settlement Scheme Information

The EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) launched on 30 March 2019.

This new scheme will enable EU, EEA or Swiss citizens and their family members to continue living and working in the UK after it leaves the EU.

The scheme allows those here before 31 December 2020 (in a deal scenario) to apply for their new immigration status.

It is vital to note that this scheme does not just relate to staff but also potentially to those receiving care and support from social care providers. The Home Office is keen that care providers seek to assist those they support who may need to go through this scheme to be aware of it . Whilst this is also a local authority responsibility there is a undoubtedly a duty of care to ensure that everyone knows about this.
