Following the uncertainty created by Brexit, EU citizens across the UK need information regarding their rights and their status in the UK over the coming years. The Government has introduced a new immigration status, the so-called 'settled status' for EU nationals already living and working in the UK which consists of a mandatory registration process. It is important that EU nationals are informed about the registration scheme, how to apply, what rights are retained, and what documents are needed to apply.
An event to inform EU nationals living and working in the Stratford District and surrounding areas will take place on Monday 18th February 2019, from 6pm to 8pm in the Council Chamber of the District Council.
The EU citizens' rights event has been organised by Stratford-on-Avon District Council in collaboration with the3million, a not-for profit organisation which campaigns to protect the rights of EU citizens in the UK post Brexit.
The free event is open to all EU nationals, their families, and their employers, and aims to provide information about EU citizens' rights in the UK during Brexit, and to answer participants' questions. The information will be delivered by a lawyer, made available by the European Commission Representation in the UK, through the Law Centres Network, to provide impartial, politically neutral information.
The3million want to thank Stratford District Council for being proactive and for taking the lead in Warwickshire in the organisation of such an important event.
Bookings can be made here on Eventbrite.
