Details

The Scottish Government and Aberdeen City & Aberdeenshire Councils would like to invite you to an event hosted by a Scottish Government Minister and the Leaders of the Councils, to hear your experiences and concerns about the impact of Brexit on the rights of EU citizens in Scotland.

Scotland is an outward facing and diverse country, with a long history of welcoming the world to visit, live, work and invest in Scotland, and to build their lives here with their families. EU citizens and their families make a vital contribution to our economy, culture, communities and society.

We recognise that 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 Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire 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.

What can I expect from the event?

This will be a participatory event, giving people the opportunity to speak directly to the Leaders of the Council, to the Minister for International Development and Europe, and to officials, and to share your experiences and concerns about the impact of Brexit on your right to live, work, study or retire in Scotland.

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

Please note that while we look forward to hearing your experiences and perspectives, unfortunately we cannot provide legal advice on individual situations.

We look forward to welcoming you!
