THURSDAY:

The Settled Status drop-in is back at Millside from 9:30am – 1pm, run by Hope Housing, a local charity that aims to fight homelessness in Bradford. Due to Brexit all Europeans living in the UK (those that have been living here 1 day and those that have been here 20 years) will need to apply for Settled Status. Europeans who have been living in the UK for 5 years should be entitled to Settled Status, which will then give them rights similar to a British National and they will be entitled to UK benefits, the same as a British National would. Those that have been in the UK for less than 5 years will get pre-settled status, which will currently give them similar rights to what they already have. Come along to our drop-in to get help with applying for Settled Status.

‘We are tomorrow’ is the new Millside youth project focusing on confidence building, exploring of dreams and a platform to speak up about issues that affect them and learn new skills. They meet every Thursday at 5pm – 6pm on zoom or social distanced in the centre or at the Park. Please get in touch with our Youth Engagement Officer Stefanie for more info: 07458305079 or sdletissier@millsidecentre.org
