Brexit and You – Info session for Deaf and disabled EU citizens in London
February 16, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
About this Event
Brexit means uncertainties for many Deaf and disabled people and their families, carers and assistants. Disire together with New Europeans would like to answer many Brexit and Settled status related questions.
- How does Settled Status work?
- How can I apply?
- Where do I get support?
- What is pre-settled status?
- How can I prove my residency?
- Will Settled status affect my benefits?
These and other questions are answered during the event by advisors / lawyers.
There will be a questions and answer session after the presentations.
The event language is English. The event is supported by Mayor of London.
We want to organise this event as accessible as possible. The event will be translated into British Sign Language and we will have a Text-to-speech reporter (Palantypist) present.
City Hall has a Changing Place.
We can meet people who need assistance to get to City Hall at London Bridge station. Please email us with your mobile number if you want to get assistance.
If there is anything else we can organise to make this event more accessible to you, please contact Disire on
Disire is the disabled people’s organisation (DPO) of disabled international residents. We are dedicated to champion the rights of all Deaf and disabled people – no matter where they were born or raised and how long they live in the UK.
We are the voice of disabled EU citizens who are unable to obtain permanent residence in the light of Brexit because they are unable to work and don’t meet the criteria because of that. We also campaign for EU carers who provide full-time care to their disabled relatives.
New Europeans is a civil rights organisation which champions freedom of movement, non-discrimination and the principle of solidarity in Europe. We began from the experience of mobile EU citizens who have found a home in another EU member state but often face unfair and unequal treatment despite their EU citizenship rights.
