All our friends and colleagues who are EU Citizens sadly now have to apply for Settled Status. Our friends at Sussex Interpreting helped us put together some useful links and advice.
There is a ‘Get Ready for Brexit’ page on the Brighton & Hove City Council’s website where you can find out more about support available for those applying to the EU Settlement Scheme, including the Brighton drop-ins provided by Migrant Help: Get Ready For Brexit
There is also a free identity checking service at Brighton Town Hall to help EU citizens complete their EU Settlement Scheme application. There is more information about this free service here: Identity Checking Service
Migrant Help offer an advice service in Brighton & Hove for vulnerable EEA migrants who need help to register under the EU Settlement Scheme. The sessions are aimed at people who may find it hard to apply by themselves for settled or pre-settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS).
Migrant Help adviser Charlotte Cheeseman is running advice sessions in Brighton and Hove at Voices in Exile, 36 Upper Bedford St, Brighton BN2 1JP on Tuesdays (13:30 to 16:30) and Fridays (11:00 to 14:00).
Although these are drop-in sessions, Charlotte can also make appointments if contacted in advance. firstname.lastname@example.org / 07483090715.
If you would like details of the other sessions then please contact Charlotte directly.
To apply, people will need to take:
- a valid ID passport, national identity card or biometric card
- evidence of UK residency NI number or dated documents like bills, doctors letters, council tax
