Event | Training
Book Now

There are estimated to be more than 900,000 children of non-Irish EU citizen parents living in the UK, born either here or abroad. This includes an estimated 239,000 UK-born children, some of whom may be British and others eligible to become British.

This course will cover best practice in advising on children’s nationality and applying to the EU Settlement Scheme, as well as addressing the particular practice issues specific to children. It includes in particular supporting children and young people in care and especially re-documenting and evidencing a child’s residence. We will also cover children in families and how to approach suitability issues for children and young people. Attendees will also gain an understanding of the issues facing children who are third-country family members.

The focus of the course will be on the practical steps involved in supporting a child to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Is the child British or could they become British?
  • Children applying with their parent(s)
  • Children born before and post deadline
  • Children applying without their parents: looked-after children and care leavers
  • Obtaining documents for children: how to get them and what to do if you can’t
  • Evidencing a child’s residence
  • Children and suitability issues
  • Third-country national children’s applications
