The Government is providing up to £3 million in grant funding for charities and other voluntary organisations who will inform UK nationals living in the EU about the need to register or apply for residency and support them as they complete their applications.
The focus of the funding will be on pensioners or disabled people, those living in remote areas or with mobility difficulties, and those needing assistance with language translation or interpretation. Organisations working with people who might be affected and who might require additional support can apply for project funding from the Foreign & Commonwealth Office from the 19th September 2019.
The Foreign & Commonwealth Office will be holding teleconferences to provide bidders with a fuller understanding of the fund and an opportunity to ask questions on the bidding process. Interested organisations can sign up at the links below:
- 4 September teleconference
- 9 September teleconference
- 12 September teleconference
- 16 September teleconference
Organisations are also invited to complete an online questionnaire to provide feedback on the UK National Support Fund strategy before the open competition is launched. A link to this questionnaire, as well as further information, is available on the Contracts Finder page for the UK National Support Fund.
