EU Settlement Scheme – Practical Support for Vulnerable EEA and Swiss citizens in Cheshire East

June 13th, 2019 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in News - (Comments Off on EU Settlement Scheme – Practical Support for Vulnerable EEA and Swiss citizens in Cheshire East)

Community & Voluntary Services Cheshire East (CVS) is offering practical support for EEA and Swiss citizens to complete their EU Settlement Scheme applications.  

CVS, in partnership with the Citizens Advice service in Cheshire East has received funding from the Home Office to deliver practical support for vulnerable EEA and Swiss citizens to complete their EU Settlement Scheme applications. This project will be supporting EU residents living or working in Cheshire East who may be marginalised or in need of extra help applying to the EU Settlement Scheme.  

Those who may require additional support include victims of domestic abuse, those with severe mental health conditions, those without a permanent address, and those who are elderly or isolated. 

 CVS is one of 57 organisations who have received a share of £9m that has been made available across the UK for voluntary and community sector organisations to support vulnerable EU citizens.  

UK Immigration Minister, Rt Hon Caroline Nokes said: 

 “EU citizens are our friends, family and neighbours, and we want them to stay.” 

“We are determined to ensure that no one is left behind, which is why we have made £9 million available to community and voluntary organisations to provide support to vulnerable people who may have difficulties applying.”

“I’m delighted that CVS Cheshire East will be working in partnership with us to ensure that everyone has the support they need to apply.” 

EU citizens applying to the Scheme only need to complete three key steps – prove their identity, show that they live in the UK, and declare any criminal convictions. Applicants can use any laptop, tablet or mobile device to apply. 

Caroline Whitney, Chief Executive of CVS Cheshire East says: 

“I am pleased that CVS in partnership with our local Citizens Advice have been able to access this funding. It was important to us that our local community had the chance to access one to one support and advice in completing their applications and this funding has given us the opportunity to achieve this.  Through this funding, we are able to reach and support those that most need our help.“ 

To access this help, CVS are urging anyone in Cheshire East and surrounding areas who feel they need additional support to contact them. They can be contacted on: 

01270 763100, euscheme@cvsce.org.uk or through our website www.cvsce.org.uk/EUSS-support 

Additional support is also available to those EU citizens in the UK who do not have the appropriate access, skills or confidence to apply online. This includes over 200 assisted digital locations across the UK where applicants can be supported through their application.  

Deal or no deal, EU citizens will have until at least 31 December 2020 to apply.

Wednesday 1st May 2019

There was no guest speaker this month, the meeting was mainly concerned with discussing the two resolutions being put forward by NFWI this year and deciding which one our members wanted to support.

The remainder of the meeting was spent discussing the decoration of the bauble we have been asked to provide for the Centenary celebrations of the Cheshire Federation of the WI celebrations this year, the Cheshire Show arrangements, our October meeting Craft Show and the various outings we have planned over the next few months.

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday June 5th at 7.30pm in Lower Peover School, when the speaker will be Rowena Lovalt and the talk “A Lingerie Designers Life”, and we invite anyone who may be interested to come and join us.
