Message from Citizens Advice:
I am writing on behalf of Citizens Advice in West Sussex and Mid Sussex District Council to give you some information about the Government’s EU Settlement scheme.
With the UK having left the EU and as we approach the end of the transition period, EU and EEA citizens and their family members have to apply to the EU settlement scheme if they want to stay in the UK.
Many people have already successfully applied to the scheme but a significant minority of people have not.
We are working in conjunction with Mid Sussex District Council to spread the word about the importance of applying to the scheme. The absolute deadline is 30th June 2021 but we are encouraging people to apply by 31st December 2020 as that is when a number of existing rights will change.
I hope that you will feel able to spread the word to your members so that they will pass it on to their staff and possibly their customers where it is relevant.
I have included a link to a short video that Citizens Advice in West Sussex has made to promote the scheme to local residents.
Thank you very much for any support you can provide with this. We have posters and leaflets available that I can send out. Please do contact me, and invite your members to contact me, if you would like further information.
