An open letter from the Leader about the future rights of European Union nationals after Brexit.
For many decades now, thousands of people from other European Union countries have made this borough their home. Today EU nationals make up more than a fifth of our residents and we recognise the vast contribution they have made to our borough and the whole of London.
We recognise that our EU residents are concerned about their future rights following our exit from the EU and that they have a lot of questions about what is coming next. We also understand that uncertainty can cause distress and our aim has always been to ensure that our residents have clarity over their future. As your local Council, we want to help answer your questions.
This is why we are creating a European Citizens Advisory Service. We will be working in collaboration with willing partners such as other London Councils, the Mayor of London, as well as with the third sector to make sure that your questions will not go unanswered by HM Government.
By using the form below, you will be sending your questions directly to us. We will then collate them and find answers to the most commonly asked, which we will publish on our website. Our aim is to offer you factual advice on your rights and entitlements as the Brexit negotiations continue, provide assistance with measures such as completing whatever registration process is required, and to provide general legal advice on all related matters.
We look forward to receiving your questions and helping you find answers and clarity over your future.
Cllr Elizabeth Campbell
Leader of the Council
Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea
