Cardinal Vincent Nichols has made it clear that he wants to help parishioners and others in our community who have to apply for EU settled or pre-settled status. The Government are trying to make this process as easy as possible so you don’t need t0 be put off, worrying it will be difficult.

There are people in the parish ready to help you through the process. We are not experts, but we can provide support and information (not official advice). Members of the group speak Czech, Slovak, Italian, Portuguese, French (and English!)

Please look out for people you know who may be affected, especially anyone who is housebound, and let them know about the process and the help that is on offer. There is a lot of useful advice available at This will be particularly helpful if you are planning to travel to, or through EU Countries, whatever your nationality or immigration status here.
