Tewkesbury Borough Council is working with the Home Office to support the area’s most vulnerable and hard to reach citizens applying to the EU Settlement Scheme.

The EU Settlement Scheme is designed to make it straightforward for EU citizens and their family members to stay after the UK leaves the EU.

The assisted digital service provides face-to-face support for citizens in the UK who don’t have the appropriate access, skills or confidence to complete the online form.

Tewkesbury Borough Council’s lead member for customer focus, Councillor Mike Dean, said: “We always go the extra mile for our customers, so I’m pleased we’re able to offer this support from our Public Services Centre in Tewkesbury. It’s great to be able to guide customers through a process that can seem complicated and intimidating - our friendly customer service advisers are on hand to help.”

The deadline for applications is:

• 30 June 2021 if the UK leaves the EU with a deal

• 31 December 2020 if the UK leaves the EU without a deal

The service is by appointment only.

To book, please phone 03333 445 675 on Monday to Friday from 9am to 6pm or Saturdays from 9am to 4pm.
