EU Settlement Scheme – less than 50 days left to apply

Time is running out for EU, EEA or Swiss citizens to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme to work, study, access free healthcare and benefits in the UK.

Calderdale Council is reminding any EU, EEA or Swiss citizens living in Calderdale to ensure they apply for settled status before the deadline of 30 June 2021.

In addition to adults, an application must also be made for every eligible child within a family. Parents should apply on behalf of their children, even if they have already applied and been granted a status themselves.

Applications can be made at gov.uk/eusettlementscheme, where there’s also lots of support to help with applications. The Council can also offer tailored support or advice to those who are unsure what they need to do.

Face-to-face appointments are available at Halifax Opportunities Trust every Tuesday (booking essential) or advice is also available over the phone. Applicants can email EUSettlement@calderdale.gov.uk or call 07857 601530 for more information or to book an appointment.

More information is available at www.calderdale.gov.uk, search for EU settlement scheme.
