EU Citizens Rights Project comes to Ayr with details on Brexit

 03 October 2018  |  


A group bringing together migrants' groups, voluntary organisations and lawyers has teamed up to make sure EU citizens in Scotland know about their rights after Brexit. After a series of successful events last Spring, volunteers from the "EU Citizens Rights Project -- Scotland" are coming to Ayr.

The event will take place on Saturday 13 October from 2:00pm - 4:00pm at Ayr Town Hall, 29 New Bridge Street, KA7 1LU. It will feature expert speakers followed by a Question and Answer session.

The aim of the project is to provide information on Brexit for over 200,000 EU citizens living in Scotland. Apart from the meetings with EU citizens, as part of the project, 15,000 multilingual factsheets on Brexit are being distributed among the communities. The initiative has been brought together by Mark Lazarowicz, an advocate whose interests include EU law and citizenship, and a former MP for Edinburgh North and Leith.

Speakers will include experts from Just Right Scotland, a Scottish legal centre specialising in justice and human rights and Mr Lazarowicz himself. The project is delivered with the financial support of the European Commission Office in Edinburgh.

The event is free. Eventbrite registration is optional, but strongly encouraged. More information about the project may be found on Facebook: EU Citizens Rights Project – Scotland.
