Settled Status Drop-in – 9:30am – 1pm
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.
Empowered Steps – 10:15am – 12:30pm
