Event next week for EU residents

Published: Thursday 8th March 18

Another free event is being held at Wandsworth Town Hall next week to help EU Nationals worried about their post-Brexit status.

The event from Citizens Advice Wandsworth 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.

This is the second event to be held, with the first event last month attended by around 100 people, many of whom where unaware that they need to take action to secure their right to remain in the UK. One attendee said; “This evening has been a godsend – there’s just no information out there but you’ve really helped me understand.”

The session will answer questions such as:

  • When and how can you apply for a document certifying Permanent Residence?
  • When and how can you apply for British Citizenship?
  • What is “settled status” and how will you qualify?

Leader of the council Ravi Govindia said: “Thousands of our residents are affected by Brexit, and as a council we are determined to do all we can support them. The last town hall event was very successful, and I would urge anyone seeking clarity on their status to go along next week.”
