Settled is delighted to welcome four additions to its trustee board.

As we move towards the 30 June deadline for the EU Settlement Scheme, Settled continues to grow and look to how we can most effectively help Europeans living in the UK post-Brexit.

Our new trustees bring a wide range of experience and knowledge that will ensure Settled can continue to be at the heart of the European community in the UK.

She has experience creating and implementing innovative safe spaces for individuals and organisations.

Changes to pre-settled rules

The Home Office announced some changes to EUSS pre-settled status rules on 21st May.

Please do not contact Settled to ask about these changes until we are clearer, as otherwise our service may become overwhelmed.

It is important that we can continue to respond effectively to beneficiaries in need of urgent casework advice and support.
We are waiting for more detail, and will update our website information, Facebook forums, and leaflets as soon as possible. Many thanks for your patience and understanding.

The Home Office announcement is here.

We’re here to help you with your Settled Status to remain in the UK. We have 100 volunteers on hand who can provide advice in all EU lanaguages.
