EUSS and vulnerable Eastern Europeans: lessons learnt

Since November last year, East European Resource Centre has been supporting our communities with the settled status application. We have also opened our EUSS centre, after we were granted Home Office Funding, in May this year.

We gathered these observations and user feedback through outreach to churches, schools, homeless day centres, and other similar organisation as well as through routine advice and assistance delivery in our offices. It’s based on 650 interactions with users in the period of between 4 December 2018 and 2 July 2019.

We analysed the take up on EUSS among disadvantages eastern Europeans, accessibility of the application process, assistance provision for such users, the EUSS as an online product, the application window deadline and so on.

This report presents initial areas of concern in relation to the EU Settlement Scheme collected in the process of outreach and delivery of information, advice and assistance to disadvantaged and vulnerable Eastern Europeans in relation to the EU Settled Status (EUSS).
