    Europia and CABB



  • EUROPIA have partnered with Citizens Advice Bury and Bolton (CABB) to deliver a project supporting EU citizens living in Greater Manchester (GM) applying for settled status within the UK.
  • As Europia is the official outreach partner for CABB, the EUSS project means that from all over GM (and beyond) people can be referred for help with applying; including drop-in sessions at Europia, or at CABB in Bolton.
  • With there being almost no such thing as generic advice and there being so many special cases, the partnership between Europia and CABB makes help available to administer through the process.
  • The combination of expertise, capacity and experience means that even the more complicated cases can be articulated to the Home Office. If necessary, CABB have the ability to fight against decisions.
