EU citizens’ rights project

Public Policy Events has teamed up with a range of organisations in a project aimed at providing advice and information for EU citizens in Scotland.

There are more than 200,000 people in Scotland who are nationals of other EU member states. Many of them are concerned about what will happen after Brexit.

This project provides basic advice and information for EU citizens in Scotland. We have produced an information factsheet, which is being produced in a number of European languages. (You can also find information about the UK government’s plans to give ‘settled status’ to EU nationals in the UK, here).

We’ve already held information days – public consultation and awareness events – in a number of locations in Scotland – Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Lerwick, Livingston, Dundee, Perth, and Ayr.

Our press statement about this further phase of the project explains more about what we are doing, and why.

You can find out more about our future plans on this website, and also on twitter @CitzRights and our Facebook Page @EURightsProject.

The project is being run for the Citizens’ Rights Project by Public Policy Events in association with New Europeans Scotland, Migrants Scotland, Edinburgh & Lothians Regional Equality Council, Polish Cultural Festival Association, and the Centre for Scottish Public Policy.

NEWS UPDATE! We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded a grant by the Scottish Government to undertake an information, engagement and research project for EU27 citizens in Scotland, See here for more information.

Media partner:

We have received financial assistance for this project from the European Commission Office in Scotland.

We are also grateful for participation by Drummond Miller Solicitors  in the information events.
