Watch! Protecting our EU citizens
EU citizens living in the UK need to apply for settled status to remain living here after the end of the Brexit transition/implementation period. In these short fils, EU citizens living in Scotland together with some organisations who work with them, speak about some of the problems around settled status. Many are concerned about those who will miss out on this new status.
The Human Rights Consortium Scotland and others are calling for an automatic right of residence, and better information and support for EU citizens including legal advice.
Watch these short films about experiences of settled status:
