EU nationals – understand your post-Brexit status
Monday 3 December, 6.30pm-8pm at Sellincourt Primary School, Sellincourt Road, SW17 9SA
Book your place now at the event, delivered on behalf of the council by Citizens Advice Wandsworth.
It is suitable for local residents who are EU nationals, plus voluntary and community sector workers and professionals wanting to find out more about the impact of Brexit.
Citizens Advice Wandsworth‘s EU Advice Project advisers will give a presentation to help EU nationals to understand their options as the UK prepares to leave the EU, and will answer questions about residence and British citizenship.
This is the latest in a string of events held this year at the town hall and in community venues. Each has been attended by around 100 people, many of whom were unaware that they need to take action to secure their right to remain in the UK.
The session will answer questions such as:
- What are your options as the UK prepares to leave the EU?
- When and how can you apply for British Citizenship?
- What is “settled status” and how will you qualify?
- What is your entitlement to live, work and receive services and benefits?
As Brexit looms ever closer, we are determined that our valued residents who are EU citizens have the information they need. People who attended the previous events have told us they are useful, so I would urge anyone who feels they may benefit to go along.
Other help for EU nationals in Wandsworth includes telephone, email and drop-in service with advice available in several European languages. Visit the webpage.
