The 48% – Winchester group is inviting you to take part in an event for EU citizens and pro-Europeans.
The Hampshire Welcomes EU! Forum is designed to provide clarity on EU citizens’ rights until the UK actually departs from the EU, and the challenges and pressures facing EU citizens at this time. The aim is to bring EU citizens and pro-Europeans together, to be heard, and to fight for their rights.
Hampshire, in particular Winchester and Southampton, is home to more than 50,000 EU citizens. Both are pro-European cities. In Winchester, the majority voted to remain in the EU.
Constituents across Hampshire have urgent, time-sensitive questions and concerns. Brexit is causing a great deal of turmoil, uncertainty and worry, especially with regard to the position of EU nationals, their families and the single market.
The aim and outcome of this meeting is to create a lobby of EU citizens resident in Hampshire to seek help and assurance that this county will support them in three ways:
- Keep EU citizens safe and treat crime fairly
- Educate employers
- Assist with more difficult Permanent Residency and Citizenship cases
