Government are asking churches and community groups to alert people to the need to apply for Settled Status in the UK , which will give them a status in UK law once we leave the EU. There is plenty of time to apply. There are an estimated 1 million EU Citizens still to apply. These may include vulnerable people such as the homeless, disabled and elderly. Many EU Citizens are members of our parishes and may have applied already. Those who hold Permanent Residence will need to convert this to settled status, by applying to the EU Settlement Scheme. Others may not be aware of the need to apply, or require particular assistance. These could include people: who are elderly, with dementia who are housebound, who live in a Care Home, who have poor English skills or need a translator, who have poor, or no, computer or digital skills who are homeless.
