EU Settlement Scheme

We are one of 12 local authorities participating in the second pilot phase of the EU Settlement Scheme for those applying for settled status.

The Home Office is testing the EU Settlement Scheme through a series of pilots ahead of the public launch. This second phase of the pilot starts in November and runs until 21 December 2018 and covers employees in the higher education and health and social care sectors.

This pilot is testing the application process that EU citizens will use when the scheme opens fully in 2019.

Feedback about your experience will be used to make improvements to the process before the scheme fully launches to the public by March 2019.
