The project will seek to answer a whole series of practical and legal questions, after some three million EU citizens in Britain have been “left in limbo” since the referendum. We will address issues such as “What legal status will people have? When is the cut-off date and what rights should EU citizens expect to secure post Brexit to ensure they are not discriminated against. What about family reunification rights? Voting rights? And the position of students?


We will increase the number of written responses to individuals queries, and questions from 2nd tier advice agencies, from 500 to 700 per year. We will look at developing website tools that can provide practical information to the public without their needing to obtain a formal piece of legal advice. We will aim to develop a series of forums and workshops so that we can promote awareness of rights to empower EU citizens and the front line organisations assisting them.
