People looking to apply for pre/settled status in the UK are being offered free help with their applications.

The deadline for applications is June 30.

The event is being run by the Citizens Rights Project and is being held in the church centre behind the parish church on Glencruitten Road, in Oban, tomorrow (Saturday June 12) between 11am and 5pm.

You will need to bring your passport or other ID, National Insurance Number, proof of address and telephone. The information you share with Citizens Rights Project is confidential. Social distancing measures apply.  The venue has access for wheelchairs.

Booking is optional, but it will guarantee you your place and it will help us to ensure social distancing. Those with booked places will be given priority. Those without booking may be asked to wait outside. When you register, you can select language assistance you require for the session. Register to avoid queues.

The events are free and open to all EU, EEA and Swiss nationals and their family members eligible to apply for pre/settled status, i.e., those who came to the UK before 31/12/2020.

Advisors speak English, Polish, Romanian and Spanish. Help in other languages might be provided if you register for the event and let us know your needs in advance.

Citizens Rights Project holds an OISC registration that authorises it to provide advice relating to the EUSS scheme – new immigration scheme for EU and EEA nationals and their family members.

Advisors help and the application are free. They will explain the scheme for you, and if you want to, they will help you apply on the spot.

This event has been organised with an assistance of a grant from the Scottish Government.
