EU citizens have no physical proof of status under the EU settlement Scheme. Without a physical document of registration, people like Laurence are worried they will not be able to access services and prove their legal residence. The new, digital-only proof of status risks excluding hundreds of thousands of EU citizens who have made the UK their home – around 22 per cent of people do not have the essential digital skills required to manage their status digitally.
the3million are challenging this policy on the basis that it discriminates against some of the most vulnerable members of our society. At this time, a key thing you can do to support EU citizens and the3million's campaign, is to get candidates for local elections to sign a pledge committing to supporting EU citizens if elected.
