We want you to stay! All Lambeth’s European Union citizens must apply for Settled Status before 30 June 2021.
From July this year EU nationals who haven’t applied to the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) risk losing the right to live and work in the UK.
This month the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants said: “On 1 July 2021 anyone who has yet to apply, or apply successfully, will be left without immigration status and exposed to the consequences of the hostile environment; at risk of losing their jobs, homes, access to benefits, and healthcare, driving licences, detention, criminalisation and removal – a second Windrush, but on a much bigger scale.”
Applications must be made online at www.gov.uk/settled-status-eu-citizens-families
Information and advice is available from:
