The UK Nationals Support Fund (UKNSF) aims to provide practical support to UK nationals living in EU/EFTA states who may struggle to complete their residency applications. Seven organisations have been awarded grants to deliver the project. These are: Age in Spain, operating in Spain; AIRE Centre, operating in Bulgaria, Greece, Iceland and Norway; Asociación Babelia, operating in Spain; CIFSA, operating in Cyprus; Franco-British Network, operating in France; International Organisation for Migration, operating in France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia and Spain; and SSAFA, operating in Cyprus, France and Germany. In some countries, organisations will focus on specific regions, particularly those with high numbers of UK nationals. Bids were assessed and selected through a transparent and open competition, based on a set of clear evaluation criteria. We did not receive bids for every EU/EFTA state. The extra assistance through the UKNSF builds on the information and support that British embassies are already providing in all EU/EFTA states.
