Formal question posed to UK Parliament regarding UK Nationals Support Fund

Hilary Benn, MP, Leeds Central recently asked, in writing, the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, which EU member states will be served by each of the seven organisations that have been awarded the £3million in funding to provide practical support to UK nationals living in the EU.

The question was answered by FCO Minister Wendy Morton MP, Minister for the European Neighbourhood and Americas as follows:

‘The UK Nationals Support Fund (UKNSF) aims to provide practical support to UK nationals living in EU/EFTA states who may struggle to complete their residency applications. Seven organisations have been awarded grants to deliver the project. These are: Age in Spain, operating in Spain; AIRE Centre, operating in Bulgaria, Greece, Iceland and Norway; Asociación Babelia, operating in Spain; CIFSA, operating in Cyprus; Franco-British Network, operating in France; International Organisation for Migration, operating in France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia and Spain; and SSAFA, operating in Cyprus, France and Germany. In some countries, organisations will focus on specific regions, particularly those with high numbers of UK nationals.  Bids were assessed and selected through a transparent and open competition, based on a set of clear evaluation criteria. We did not receive bids for every EU/EFTA state. The extra assistance through the UKNSF builds on the information and support that British embassies are already providing in all EU/EFTA states.’

 The successful bid submitted by CIFSA is being managed by CRPG who are assisting British nationals, especially those who are vulnerable and at risk in getting registered in Cyprus. Advice is available via the CIFSA/CRPG website – details below.
