One in three EU citizens in Brent have registered for the settlement scheme. Have you?

Wednesday August 28th, 2019

New government figures show Brent has the highest number of EU citizens in the country registered through the settlement scheme, above Birmingham and other London boroughs.euflag_map_2221005Med

In total, 22,330 Brent EU nationals have applied for settled or pre-settled status – around a third (34%) of the people who will need to register before June 2021 (or December 2020 in the event of no-deal). This compares to around a quarter of those eligible across the UK as a whole.

Brent Council has held a number of events providing information and reassurance to EU residents and prioritised the promotion of the scheme, encouraging people to register early.

Cllr Tom Miller, Cabinet Member for Community Safety and Engagement, said:

“We pride ourselves on the diverse range of people that call our borough home, including our large community of EU nationals. While there’s still so much uncertainty surrounding Brexit, we’re clear that we need to do our bit to arm EU residents in Brent with the information they need to secure their status in the UK.

We’ve been working hard to get the word out there and, while there’s still more to do, it’s great to see this positive early response.”
