The EU rights and Brexit Hub is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (a public body). The project offers a unique, specialist, free second-tier advice and advocacy service on EU welfare rights.
This service will be open from September 2020 and will continue to invite evidence until September 2022. It will be based in York Law Clinic but will operate as a nationwide hub.
Examples of cases they hope to help with –
– problems interpreting/understanding the law;
– decision maker error
– delays in decision making
– problems with evidencing rights (including problems posed by the digital nature of settled status)
– problems relating to decisions on a ‘right to reside’ to access benefits
– communication problems or obstacles faced by the client
– confusion created by cross-border movement
– direct or indirect nationality discrimination
– direct or indirect sex, gender, age or disability discrimination
