Lambeth for Europe has been invited to take part in a campaign to help EU citizens prove their right to continue living and working in the UK. Can you help make sure our EU citizen neighbours are able to continue their lives here?
By June 2021 EU nationals must have applied for ‘settled status’ and obtained a code proving their right to be here. EU citizens’ groups are concerned that many people don’t know about the new requirements, and have drawn parallels withe Windrush scandal where British people were deported. We have a window of a few months where we could potentially make a big difference.
The EU Embassy in London is planning an information and advice campaign which Lambeth for Europe and other European Movement groups have offered to support. Plans include a poster and leaflet campaign in shops, colleges, care homes and community groups, informing people of the requirements and offering support with their applications.
We'll kick off our work with a campaign planning session on 19th November. If you'd like to help with the campaign please do join this session if you can - we need your ideas for how we can reach as many people as possible!
