As we have previously said, the EU Settlement Scheme will be a streamlined, user-friendly, digital application system with multiple service options to meet the needs of a varied customer base including vulnerable applicants. As such, we are engaging with stakeholders who represent local authorities, community groups, employers and users to help build a system that is fit for purpose.

We are working in partnership with community organisations and a number of local authorities to support a range of vulnerable applicants through the second phase of the EU Settlement Scheme private beta. A list of these local authorities and community organisations are provided in the Immigration Rules.
