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.
Further details and registration forms for each of the events can be found below, together with details of how to book places. Places are free. You don’t have to register in advance, but places are limited, and you can make sure of a place by booking in advance.
Further details and to book places:
Wednesday 10 October, Glasgow (Romanian/Slovak), here
Saturday 13 October: Ayr, here
You can also download publicity leaflets for the Ayr event here
Each event features expert speakers followed by a Question and Answer session.
The panel of speakers at each event includes legal, civic society, and EU policy experts. As well as the panel session, information leaflets from the European Commission, advice agencies, and citizens’ rights groups are available to take away.
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.
