Businesses in Edinburgh and the Lothians employing staff from EU27 countries need to start preparing for upcoming changes. Regardless of what happens with Brexit, all EU27+ citizens need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue to live and work in the UK after December 2020. You need to act now to ensure staff retention, business continuity, and compliance with the new immigration regulations.
How can we help?
We offer free EU Settlement Scheme information and support sessions for staff. We can deliver them at your workplace at a time that suits you (i.e over lunch break or between or after shifts). Sessions last 1.5 hour and are delivered in English or in Polish by a qualified adviser – Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) certified. Participants will also receive digital and language support to apply during the session.
Who are EU27+ citizens?
These are nationals of Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden; citizens of Norway, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Iceland also need to apply.

We have a limited number of sessions available so book your session now. Please also note that this project runs only until the end of March 2020. EU Settlement Scheme Support service is delivered by Feniks and the EU Citizens’ Rights Project thanks to the EUSS grant funded by the Home Office. In April 2019, the Home Office has made available £9 million to 57 organisations across the UK to assist certain groups of EU27 citizens in the application process.
