Vulnerable Citizens and The EU Settlement Scheme – Part I

October 13, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Do you support vulnerable* EU/EEA/Swiss nationals or citizens who are relatives of EU/EEA/Swiss (including non-EU citizens)?

There is less than 10 months left to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS). All citizens required to apply who do not do so by 30/06/2020 will have no right to reside in the UK after this date.

EUSS Applications for vulnerable citizens can be a lengthy process. Therefore, identifying them as soon as possible is key to guarantee their rights in the future.

Attend this webinar to learn how you can support vulnerable EU citizens to continue living in the United Kingdom and safeguarding their rights after Brexit.

This webinar will help you understand:
• What the EU Settlement Scheme is
• Who needs to apply and how
• The application process – what it looks like and complexities that might be encountered when supporting vulnerable citizens.
• The role of local authorities in supporting children in care and care leavers with their EUSS application.
• Misconceptions that can negatively affect vulnerable EU citizens.
• Sources of support

This joint webinar is organised by the Citizens Rights Project in co-operation with our partners from Drummond Miller LLP.

The principal speaker will be Janey Armstrong, a partner at Drummond Miller LLP and leads the immigration team in the firm’s Glasgow office. Since the Brexit referendum, she has been advising EEA nationals and their family members about their right to reside in the UK. She specialises in helping individuals with complex cases to apply for status through the EU Settlement Scheme. Janey, and other solicitors at Drummond Miller, have presented at a number of Citizens’ Right Project events across Scotland.

*Eg: Elderly, children in care, victims of domestic abuse, homeless people, people with chaotic live styles, no access to the Internet, poor digital skills and/or poor English knowledge, and others.

**This event has been organised with the assistance of funding from the Scottish Government.
