To make sure that Polish/other EU citizens do not become illegal immigrants in the UK after Brexit, SPS became involved in supporting EU nationals with applying for the Settled Status, a status EU citizens require after Brexit.
Last year we supported over 200 people through the Home Office funding granted via Nottingham Law Centre. We helped them to apply for the status: for some it was settled status, for others pre-settled status. Many have no IT skills, English language barriers, no modern mobile telephones. Many of them came back to us to check whether they had received the status or not, unable to access their e-mail or online Home Office profile.
Our service users praise SPS advisers’ professionalism, efficiency and friendly atmosphere.
We are proud to deliver reliable and current information about the EU Settlement Scheme – both during our sessions and in the newspaper.
