Brexit and what it means

Stay Settled in Newham

From July this year, EU nationals who have not completed their EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) will face losing their right to live and work in the UK.

A consortium of Newham organisations and charities are behind a ‘Stay Settled in Newham’ campaign, encouraging those citizens who haven’t applied to do so and also to reach out should they need advice, support or guidance with their application.

The consortium includes:

EU citizens can get direct advice from all of the above but are being encouraged to use the referral forms, which can be found at

Sarah Rance, Project Lead, from the Renewal Programme, the leading charity for the campaign, commented “We are proud to be leading this vital consortium: Stay Settled In Newham, commissioned by LBN, to ensure the most vulnerable residents who need to apply, get guidance, support & advice, enabling them to submit their application for EU Pre/Settle Status. In collaboration with our strong networks, specialist advisors and community partners, we are drawing upon our fifty years of experience supporting marginalised people and communities in Newham, before the 30 June Home office deadline.”

Applications must be made at before 30 June 2021.
