Brexit - what you need to know

Brexit: new rules

EU citizens and their families

We are proud of our diverse population in Bradford district. EU citizens who choose to live and work here make our community a better place to work and live and we want to make sure you protect your rights to live and work in the UK as you do now. 

The deadline for EU Settlement Scheme applications passed on 30 June 2021. But if you have not already applied for the EU Settlement Scheme you can still apply with a late application.

Late applications are allowed if you have reasonable grounds for not having applied by 30 June or you meet other late deadline criteria. You can find out more on the government website.

We are proud of the contribution our EU citizens make to our community and want to make sure all our EU citizens and their families protect their rights. Local help and support is available on our advice and help hubs page.
