Law firm set to help EU citizens


Paragon Law, a leading immigration firm based in Nottingham and a Chamber patron, has launched a joint project with the charity Here for Good to support at-risk and vulnerable EU citizens living in the Midlands. Following the UK’s departure from the EU, most EU, EEA and Swiss


citizens living in the UK will need to make an application under the Home Office’s EU Settlement Scheme to continue residence. Failure to apply by the deadline, 30 June 2021, would result in those citizens being made unlawfully resident and potentially at risk of deportation. This new partnership aims to mitigate this risk by providing free,


comprehensive legal advice to those most vulnerable. Victims of domestic abuse, homeless citizens and those with serious mental and physical disabilities are among the groups needing support through the process. The Paragon Law - Here for Good service, which launched at the start of


February, includes a phone advice line, an email enquiries service and complex 121 case support. Thalej Vasishta, CEO at Paragon Law, said: “Here for Good has worked


since its inception to promote the rights of EU citizens, ensuring that EU citizens are aware of the fact that they are able to stay in the UK and through outreach work making as many people as possible aware of the application process under the EU Settlement Scheme. “We are delighted to be partnering with Here for Good to ensure that


through our joint know-how and legal expertise, we reach as many EU nationals as possible and represent them through the Settled Status process.” Here for Good’s Co-founder, Tahmid Chowdhury, said: “With the EU


Settlement Scheme deadline fast approaching, we need to ensure that we can provide a comprehensive service that supports as many citizens as possible.”

Three Peaks Challenge will help needy


Taking place in September, Charity Link’s Leicestershire Three Peaks Challenge sees individuals and teams tackle its 16-mile route around the Charnwood countryside. The peaks include Beacon Hill, Bardon Hill (Leicestershire’s highest point at 88ft short of a mountain), and the ‘Old John’ Tower in Bradgate Park. Charity Link is based in Leicester and supports individuals and


families in poverty by providing essential items, including clothing, beds, cookers and mobility equipment. Last year’s event saw 14


organisations compete for the inaugural Corporate Team Cup, with the team from Octopus Energy crowned champions. The company is now inviting businesses throughout the East Midlands to enter the annual challenge.


Marina Sykes, Head of


Partnerships at Octopus Energy, said: “We couldn’t wait to take part in the first Corporate Team Cup element of the Three Peaks last year as we’ve supported Charity Link since we launched our Leicester business tariff in 2018, after learning of the charity’s vital work. The cup now takes pride of place in our Leicester office. “We’re looking forward to


being part of the competition again this year and would strongly encourage other local businesses to join in. Whether they want to challenge us for first place or have colleagues who want to go round the route at a more leisurely pace, there is a fantastic atmosphere on the day, the scenery is beautiful and everyone takes part knowing they are helping to improve the lives of local people in need.”
