EU Citizens and Brexit: An Introduction to the EU Settlement Scheme

Online workshop via WebEx

Thu, 2 July 2020

1:30pm – 3:30pm

This online workshop is aimed at LAs, charities, third sector organisations and faith and community groups who are already working with EU nationals and their families, or who are likely to come into contact with this group in the future. The purpose of the online workshop is to give frontline staff and volunteers a clear understanding of the process for EU citizens and their family members to apply to legalise their stay in the UK in preparation for Brexit. The workshop will include presentations and delegates will have the opportunity to ask questions.

Following the workshop, delegates will have a greater understanding of:

  • What the EU Settlement Scheme is and what steps EU nationals must take to secure their status after Brexit.
  • The rights that this new immigration status will give to EU citizens and their family members.
  • What constitutes immigration advice and what support needs to be regulated.
  • Where to signpost EU nationals to enable them to obtain other sources of support and further information.

This workshop is organised by Migration Yorkshire and Seraphus. To secure a place, please register at
