With the UK planning to leave the EU in March 2019, this study engaged EU migrants across the UK to uncover attitudes towards Brexit and the capability of different people to navigate the application process for settled status. This research includes a range of migrant communities in around the country and found that most people should be able to navigate the practical application process for settled status without major problems.

However, some people were likely to face challenges due to gaps in their employment or residence record, or difficulty using the online application and payment system. The research also found significant emotional barriers which could affect people’s ability to successfully navigate the process.
