Supporting health and social care providers in Devon

EU Settlement Scheme

The Home Office has announced continuation of funding until the end of March 2022 for many Grant Funded Organisations who are able to provide direct guidance to vulnerable adults who have yet to apply and to those who require support in submitting appeals.

Much needed clarification around the financial impact on Continuing Health Care and Funded Nursing Care has been obtained from the Department of Health and Social Care. It has been confirmed that both services will remain non-chargeable to EU/EEA nationals. The overseas visitor charging guidance has been updated and updated guidance to signpost individuals to the scheme.

Post-deadline update on late applications and support available

EU, EEA and Swiss citizens and their family members who were resident in the UK by 31 December 2020 who have not yet applied to the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS) should check if they need to apply to obtain UK immigration status to allow them to continue living in the UK.
The deadline for most people was 30 June 2021, but you can still apply if you have reasonable grounds for not applying by the deadline or that deadline did not apply to you (for example, family members newly arriving in the UK from 1 January 2021 to join a family member who already has pre-settled or settled status).
Support remains available across the UK, with further details on the GOV.UK website. Telephone support is also available through the Home Office Settlement Resolution Centre on 0300 123 7379. You can find out more information on how to apply on the GOV.UK website.

The Association of Directors of Adult Social Services is pleased to announce that it now has a dedicated web page to provide general advice and guidance regarding the EU Settlement Scheme that relates to people needing care and support and which can be accessed by members of the public, local authorities, carers and care sector organisations.

Support available
