Brexit & EU Citizens: briefing session for third sector workers and volunteers
Do you work with EU citizens? Do they have questions about Brexit? Learn about the “EU settlement scheme” and the right of EEA citizens and their families to reside in the UK after Brexit, as well as other questions about UK citizenship and matters such access to housing, benefits and services.
Who is this session for?
This briefing session on Brexit is aimed at NGOs, EU citizens’ groups, community groups and other third sector organisations.
You will be signposted to any relevant materials and support tools, such as Home Office toolkits, and specific advice services for citizens who need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme.
This free briefing session will:
- Give you a clear understanding of the EU Settlement Scheme (the new immigration status that EU citizens will need to apply for after Brexit).
- Explain the changes to EU citizens’ rights to work, study, access public services, and to vote.
- Signpost sources of further information and support.
- Give practical information on the steps EU citizens, and the organisations that work with them, can take to resolve any problems.
There will be some time for a Q&A session after the presentations.
