About Us:

The Diocese in Europe Residency Support Team was formed when the diocese, part of the Church of England, received a project grant under the UK National Support Fund through the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO).  

The project is designed to inform and support UK nationals and their direct family members who wish to secure their residency rights under the Withdrawal Agreement to live in France after 31st December. Even those who already hold a residency card, must apply for a Withdrawal Agreement Residency Permit before 1 July 2021.  Our service has a particular focus to provide assistance to those aged 65 and over and living in Nouvelle-Aquitaine, or those who may be considered more vulnerable.

 

Our team comprises native English speakers with a broad range of relevant experience who are keen to support and assist UK nationals progress their residence applications so they can remain living in France.
