Applications for the EU Settlement Scheme will be conducted online. Consequently, EU Nationals will need to digitally access a computer, laptop or mobile phone in order to complete the application.
The Home Office has an Assisted Digital Service which has been set up to
help people who have problems with digital access. The service aims to ensure that nobody is excluded from making an immigration application due to lack of digital skills or access to a computer. A general outline on the role that these hubs will play can be read HERE
Furthermore, the assisted digital service will provide EU Nationals wishing to apply for either pre-Settled or Settled status help in the form of telephone support or face-to-face at a library or another suitable location. It is important to note that these centres do not offer Immigration advice.
Currently, these are the locations where you can access help within the East Midlands North sphere:
- Chesterfield Library, New Beetwell Street.
- 4 Nottingham locations: Main Street (Bulwell), Mary Potter Centre (Gregory Boulevard), Angel Row, and St Anne’s Valley Centre.
- Sneinton Library, 206 Sneinton Dale, Nottinghamshire.
- Worksop Library, Memorial Avenue, Nottinghamshire.
There are other nearby locations in Staffordshire, Leicestershire, and Yorkshire- the list could be updated in the coming months. A full list of assisted digital service locations can be found HERE.
