Training regarding Habitual Residency and Right to Reside Test (HRT & R2R)

Diversity Voice invite Children and Adult Social Care, Getset Family Support Workers, CAB staff and volunteers, school, preschool practitioners and other welfare rights advisers to take part in professional training run by an experienced welfare right advisor in the field of Habitual Residency Test and Right to Reside.


This training will help you to understand how to asses people’s eligibility to the welfare system. People who move from abroad to the UK usually must do this test when they apply for benefits. This test may stop them if they don’t provide right evidence to prove their eligibility.

This is a full day’s training organised at your premises for your team. If you are a manager at Children or Adult Social Care, Getset, CAB or other places please contact us by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.

The course usually starts at 9am and finish about 4pm. Including break for lunch and 2 short breaks for coffee and biscuits.

The course will cover:
- Explanation of the meaning Right to Reside and HRT, and who to apply to.
- When people are exempt from HRT and R2R test.
- Case law.
- Minimum earnings threshold for EEA migrants.
- How other family members and spouse can impact on the test..
- What should you do when a family separates and a single parent will be applying for benefits for the first time.
- What will you do when the child is in full time education.

The training is run as a workshop and people will have the opportunity to ask questions and work on case work examples, which may already exist in your services. This training will help you to understand and support more effectively your clients from EEAeconomic areas.
