EU Citizens' Rights Project

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

There are almost 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 will provide 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.

We’re also holding information days - public consultation and awareness events - in a number of cities in Scotland – Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness.

These events will feature expert speakers followed by a Question and Answer session.

The panel of speakers will include legal, social service, and EU policy experts. As well as the panel session, there will be stalls, displays, and leaflets to take away from advice, information and local government agencies.

These events will be free and open to the public. They will be of particular interest for EU nationals living in Scotland, along with those in agencies who work with and alongside them. Our first event was held in Inverness on 14 April, and there's a brief report of the day here .
