Event description

Description

Organised with the support of INCA CGIL, Italian Advice Centre supported by the charity ITACA.

Are you an EU/EEA national living in the UK? Worried about your rights and options post-Brexit?

Although the legal status of EU/EEA nationals in the UK will not change until the UK concludes its exit from the European Union, the government has so far refused to guarantee our rights.

Can we take any steps now to safeguard our futures? Join us for an evening of advice about Permanent Residency, Settled Status, Citizenship and how they may apply to you.

Agenda:

6:20PM - Doors
6:30PM - Introductions, presentation by Michael Hanley and Muhunthan Paramesvaran, Q&A
