Following the departure of the UK from the EU and the ending of the transition period, European free movement no longer applies in the UK. Most EEA nationals entering the UK after 1 January 2021 are now subject to immigration rules which can restrict their right to work, claim benefit, access services and health care and rent property. 

EUSS, immigration status and late applications

Our supporting EEA Nationals briefing provides information about different types of immigration status that EEA nationals living in the UK can have following the EUSS application deadline, and a brief summary of their associated rights and entitlements. It also sets out important information about the ongoing arrangements for making late applications to the EUSS and includes information about 28 day notice letters.

Local responses to supporting non-UK nationals who are homeless

A collection of case studies from five different areas in England who have developed responses to supporting non-UK nationals who are homeless.

Other resources can be found at: 

  • ADASS (Directors of Adults Social Services) have developed an EUSS information hub for practitioners, which is also relevant to homelessness services.  
  • The Greater London Authority hosts the European Londoners Hub with up-to-date guidance for EU/EEA nationals on rights, entitlements and how to apply to the EUSS.
