For the majority of cases, the application and review process in relation to the EU Settlement Scheme will be straightforward. However, the Government recognises that not every case will be straightforward and, as with all cases outside the scope of legal aid, exceptional funding may be available where the requisite criteria are met.

It is worth noting that the Home Office have introduced an employer toolkit which equips employers with the right tools and information to support EU citizens and their families to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme.
