Are you an EU citizen living or working in Scotland?

 19 July 2018  |  


The three Ayrshire Councils have teamed up with the Scottish Government to answer your questions about the impact of Brexit on your right to live, work, study or retire in Scotland.  

Hosted by a Scottish Government Minister and the Council Leaders, the event will take place on Tuesday 7 August 2018 at North Ayrshire Council Chambers, Cunninghame House, Irvine from 6.45pm (registration) until 8.30pm.

The event forms part of a series of engagement sessions which are taking place throughout Scotland. Aimed at EU and European Economic Area (EEA) citizens living in Scotland, the events are also open to anyone who has an interest in supporting EU/EEA citizens or is affected by these issues.

Guests will have the opportunity to hear more about the Scottish Government's policy approach to immigration and the movement of EU citizens following Brexit, and how the Councils are supporting EU citizens.

Michael Russell, Cabinet Secretary for Government Business and Constitutional Relations, said: "Scotland is an outward facing and diverse country, with a long history or welcoming the world to visit, live, work and invest in Scotland, and to build their lives here with their families.

"We recognise that this is a difficult time for many EU citizens living in Scotland who may be concerned about their future rights and status. The Scottish Government and Ayrshire Councils want to hear more about the experiences and concerns of EU citizens since the EU Referendum, and how this is impacting on their lives."

Places are limited, to book a place, please visit www.eventbrite.co.uk and search for EU Citizen event.

Refreshments will be available and registration takes place from 6.45pm with the event starting at 7pm.
