You will support one of 57 UK organisations who received funds from the Home Office to help vulnerable EEA nationals make ‘settled status’ applications.

We offer up to 4 placements to willing and eligible candidates who can dedicate a day or half a day a week of their time.

  • acquire experience providing 1-1 advice under the supervision of an experienced advisor;
  • provide language and technological support in making applications to the EU settlement scheme;
  • work closely with vulnerable community members with complex needs and assist them in the legal process of securing their legal rights in the UK;
  • assist in preparing necessary paperwork for more complex cases;
  • learn details about the EU settlement scheme;
  • acquire free OISC Level 1 EUSS registration;
  • work with an organisation who has supported the Central Eastern European in the Lothians community for over 10 years;
  • get to know our other Feniks volunteers and receive support from the volunteer coordinator and Feniks support structures.

This role is a voluntary position. The funding for this project finishes end of March 2020.
