EU Exit (Brexit)

Advice for EU citizens

Clackmannanshire is home to many residents from different European Union (EU) countries that make an important contribution to our area. We hope that you feel that Clackmannanshire is a safe and welcoming environment for all nationalities.

The EU Settlement Scheme provides further details about how EU citizens and their families can obtain settled status in the UK. However, the deadline of 30 June 2021 to apply to the EUSS is fast approaching.

The mygov.scot website provides information and guidance for EU citizens living in Scotland after Brexit and includes information on rights, education and where to access support.

If you need help applying to the EUSS, the Scottish Government funds support services offered by Citizens Advice Scotland, including a free, confidential and impartial helpline on 0800 916 9847.

The Scottish Government commissioned JustRight Scotland to create a range of factsheets on the Rights of EU citizens in Scotland. This guidance explains the rights of EU citizens in Scotland to vote, work and access healthcare, education, housing and benefits. These are now available in English, Polish, Romanian, Lithuanian, Spanish and Italian.

Assistance and resources

The Scottish Government fund a caseworker based at COSLA who assists EU citizens who have contact with local authorities to apply to the EUSS. Looked after children, care leavers and people using housing services can all use this resource.

Any local authority employee can also contact the caseworker if they have EU citizen service users. The caseworker can be reached on 07395 885724 or at mcarletti@iom.int.
