EU, EEA or Swiss citizens and their families must apply to the EU settlement scheme if they wish to remain living in the UK beyond 30 June 2021. Latest estimates suggest that only 60 percent of people living in the Dorset Council area who need to apply to the scheme have actually done so. There are now less than 10 weeks left for people to apply to get settled or pre-settled status.
If you are aware of anyone who you think is yet to apply, don’t be afraid to have an open conversation with them. More information about staying in the UK is available from the Citizens Advice website.
