We understand that the UK’s decision to leave the European Union impacts the lives of many of our members at The Welcoming who are EU migrants and currently living in Edinburgh.

We want you to know that we are committed to supporting our EU migrant members to gain settled status here in the UK.

Here is some useful information about the EU Settlement Scheme:

Settlement Scheme

If you’re an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, you and your family can apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK after 30 June 2021.

Visit the UK Government website for advice on:

  • whether you need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme
  • what status you will get
  • what you will need to apply
  • how to apply
  • and what happens after you apply.

For translations of the guidance in 26 EU languages visit Guidance translations: EU Settlement Scheme.

Individual support with EU Settlement Scheme applications

If you need help with your application, the Citizens Rights Project are offering online and face-to-face support in multiple EU languages.
