This free evening event is for EEA/EU nationals to receive information and advice regarding their rights and status in the UK over the coming years following Brexit.
In the UK, 7% of workers in the construction industry are EU27 nationals, compared with 6% in all other UK industries (Office for National Statistics, 2018). With a desire to support all those within and outside the industry, the Building Centre is collaborating with the3million to help individuals navigate through the complexities of EEA/EU UK rights during Brexit and understand the steps that can be taken to safeguard their futures with Permanent Residency, the Settled Status Scheme and British Citizenship.
The evening’s information will be delivered by a lawyer, made available through the EU Citizens' Rights Project. The lawyer is offered for free by the European Commission Representation in the UK, through the Law Centres Network, to provide impartial, politically neutral information.
We are also delighted to have Dorte Rich Jørgensen, who works for Atkins, sharing her own views and insights into her recent experience gaining British Citizenship and becoming a dual Danish-British national.
The evening will conclude with an audience Q&A.
