Legal Advice forum for EU/EEA nationals
Organised by Den Danske Kirke I London, Den Aaben Aften Cafe and Legal Advice Forum
Are you an EU/EEA national living in the UK? Worried about your rights and options post-Brexit?
Although the legal status of EU/EEA nationals in the UK will not change until the UK concludes its exit from the European Union, the government has so far refused to guarantee our rights.
Can we take any steps now to safeguard our futures? Join us for an evening of advice about Permanent Residency, Settled Status, Citizenship and how they may apply to you.
