Father Hudson's joins calls to lift EU Settlement Scheme deadline

EUSS

Father Hudson's Care has joined a call to lift the deadline for the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS).

The scheme allows EU citizens living in the UK the right to continue living and working in the UK after Brexit. However, with the deadline to the scheme fast approaching, charities are warning that more time and funding is needed to reach the most socially isolated and vulnerable EU citizens living in the UK.

Forty-five charities have written to the Prime Minister, urging him to lift the 30 June deadline for EU citizens to apply to retain their rights to remain in the UK following Brexit. The charities are all funded by the Home Office to provide support to vulnerable EU citizens including children and elderly people in care, victims of domestic abuse and trafficking, Roma communities and homeless people.

Father Hudson's provides this vital support through Brushstrokes Community Project in Sandwell. Together with three local partners, Brushstrokes supports some of the most vulnerable EU citizens to apply to the scheme.

You can also write to your local MP to ask them to take a stand with EU citizens who have made the UK their home. The Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants has a template letter:
