About this Event

Who is this event for?

This briefing session on Brexit is aimed at local government workers.

You 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.

This free training session will:

  • Give you 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, so you are able to provide assurances.
  • Explain the changes to EU citizens’ rights to work, study, access public services, and to vote.
  • Signpost sources of further information and support.
  • Give practical information on the steps EU citizens, and the organisations that work with them, can take to resolve any problems.
