CCLC warns of shortfall in children securing status through EU Settlement Scheme

With less than a week to go before the deadline for applications to the EU settlement scheme, Coram Children's Legal Centre is concerned that not all eligible children have applied.

Applications from children have not yet met the numbers estimated to be needed in 2018, even though the number of applications overall has significantly outstripped 2018 predictions by 20-30 per cent. This potentially leaves many thousands of children at risk of being undocumented on 1 July 2021.

CCLC says that, with clear evidence that eligible children have not yet applied to the scheme, the government must now extend the deadline to allow time for these children to apply.
