As part of the Stories of Brexit campaign led by the European Movement, EU in Brum is proud to host its first ever webinar on Citizens’ Rights in the UK and the EU. We have four great speakers:
Luke Piper, Head of Policy for the3million
Fiona Godfrey, co-chair of British in Europe
Pawel Koloziej, Midlands area Service Coordinator for
Lord Andrew Adonis, Chair of the European Movement
The end of the Brexit transition period and the UK government’s decision to end Freedom of Movement had serious consequences for every single person in the United Kingdom and the European Union.
This panel discussion is part of the Stories of Brexit campaign run by the European Movement, of which EU in Brum is an affiliate. Since its formation in 2016, EU in Brum has had citizens’ rights at its core.
The event features expert speakers from the European Movement, British in Europe, Settled and the3million, who will discuss the consequences for EU and UK citizens’ rights that are already being felt and issues that are likely to emerge in the future, including:
How can we support those who miss the UK’s EU Settlement Scheme deadline or do not register for the equivalent schemes across the EU?
Will some citizens lose the voting rights they previously held?
What will be the impact on family reunion rights?
Problems accessing Withdrawal Agreement rights and with digital only immigration status.
This promises to be an engaging and informative evening telling surely the most consequential of all Stories of Brexit.
Settled Status- Make Sure our Neighbours are settled!
At present, we have to decided to concentrate on making sure that our neighbours from EU-27 countries living in the UK do not fall foul of new regulations.
As part of this, we are asking if you can deliver leaflets about the support Settled can provide to anywhere that the message will be seen.
This can be shops, foodbanks, churches- even your neighbours' porches! EU in Brum members are literally going door to door and getting their neighbours to put the leaflet on their front door.
EU in Brum committee member Izzy Knowles has thousands of leaflets to be delivered. She also has copies of the following EU Delegation leaflets, in 20 languages:

If you would like to deliver some of the leaflets Izzy has, please get in touch, and we will put you in touch with her to liaise.
Alternatively, you could save the pictures below, print off copies and then distribute them.
We would advise anyone, regardless of their situation, to make any EU-27 citizen they know aware of the situation, and how important it is to apply to the scheme before the end of the year. We are well aware it's a busy time of year, and it's still crucial to adhere to official advice and the Tier-3 restrictions imposed on Birmingham due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It is also important that nobody should take unnecessary risks.
With that said, if you can help us to deliver these important leaflets, we should be very grateful for your support!
Write to Your MP
The single most important thing you can do! Make sure to remind them of all the promises made before the referendum and especially before the last General Election.
Our first Euro Café was a great success, with around 80 people in attendance. Thank you, everyone who came. We hope we could answer all questions or at least point people in the right direction. If you need more support, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Brexit is still rubbish. We're not going away.
