As part of the Brexit transition arrangements, the UK government has put in place a scheme by which EU nationals resident in the United Kingdom can apply for ‘Settled/Pre-Settled status’ to remain in the UK. City of York Council’s Communities & Equalities team are doing a research project with St John University on the experiences of the EU Settlement Scheme in York.
They are inviting all EU nationals and family members living in York to share their experience and influence the services delivered for migrant communities in York. They want to hear the voice of local residents, to better understand their struggles and victories in securing a legal status in UK.
The research has the following aims:
- To understand the experiences of migrants with the Brexit transition and the EU Settlement Scheme
- To identify critical needs among migrants in respect to obtaining a secure residence status following the UK’s exit from the EU
- To react to these needs by providing information and help via the community outreach services at the council
Any EU nationals can have their say by filling in the following survey https://yorksj.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_efZUtJgggaAvXx3
If you require the questionnaire in a different language contact Dr Chris Moreh at York St John.
If you have questions about the EU Settlement Scheme and your rights of residence in the UK, or you would like to hear more about the services provided by York City Council to non-British nationals living in the York area, please contact Bianca Vartic, Community Involvement Officer at the council.
