3 Million and Northumbria University report: Experiences and impact of the EU Settlement Scheme

‘Anxiety’ generally remains a strong feeling; even those with a status ‘strongly agree’ that they are anxious at 45.1%.

This is from the January 2020 report (pdf) from 3 Million and the Northumbria University on their findings from the Settled Status Survey conducted between 20 November and 20 December 2019.

The Survey was designed for EU/EEA/Swiss citizens and their non-EU/EEA/Swiss family members who need to apply, or already have applied, for Settled Status.

The report finds:

  • 89.53% of respondents are unhappy about the lack of a physical document
  • 10.9% of respondent are already being asked for Settled status proof, indicating possible discrimination since this is not yet required
  • 90.5% of Survey respondents who applied have had a decision for their application, while 8.5% were still waiting at point of Survey response submission.
