09 March 2020EU Citizens Rights

We have received the follwing message from the Citizen's Rights Project:

 

Citizens’ Rights Project, in collaboration with Citizens Advice Scotland (CAS), will be offering a further series of briefing events in March about Brexit, citizens’ rights and the EU settlement Scheme for local authorities and national organisations supporting EU/EEA citizens and their family members.

 

We will be in Inverness on Friday, 27 March 2020 from 15:00 to 17:00 at the Spectrum Centre (1B Margaret Street, Inverness, IV1 1LS)

 

You can register your interest here.

 

Attendees 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.

 

If you have received enquiries about these matters, we hope that these events will provide you with useful information on these issues.

 

These free briefing sessions will:

 

  • Give attendees 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’ status, and when these will come into effect
  • Explain possible changes to EU citizens’ rights to work, study, access public services, and to vote.
  • Signpost sources of further information and support from COSLA, Citizens Advice Scotland, IOM and others.
  • Give practical information on the steps EU citizens, and the organisations that work with them, can take to resolve any problems.

 

I hope that your organisation will be represented at this event. Please feel free to book as many places as you like. Additionally, if you know any other organisations that you think would benefit from attending, please do forward this email on to them.

 

If you have any questions, please contact our project team at info@citizensrightsproject.org

 

Yours faithfully,
