Citizens’ Rights Project provides information, advice and support for EU citizens in Scotland by connecting groups and organisations working within European communities. They are a group of third sector workers, researchers, legal experts and volunteers. You can find more about their core team here

Citizens Rights Project not only establishes a forum for European communities to voice their concerns, but also provides a platform for collective action to drive positive social change. 

Their aim is to assist EU nationals in accessing information and advice on citizens’ rights, and to encourage and facilitate their contacts with public sector and government organisations. They want to inform EU nationals about opportunities available to them in Scotland, but also to promote awareness of their concerns and needs, especially those raised by Brexit. 

Although the deadline to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme has passed, they are still supporting many EU citizens with matters related to the scheme. Some approach the project because they don’t understand how their new migration status work, others because they are facing issues when proving, updating or accessing their status.

Many others get in touch because they are still waiting for the outcome of their applications. They also have clients who should have applied but haven’t done yet, and need to submit a late application.

Citizen Rights Project have organised  a FREE multilingual support clinics in Aberdeen to provide advice, information and help to EU citizens and their family members with their EU Settlement Scheme applications.

The clinics will take place on Turning Point Scotland, 27 Holburn Street, Aberdeen, Ab10 6BS, on the following dates

  • Saturday, 14th of May | 10.00 am to 15.00 pm
  • Saturday, 18th of June | 10.00 am to 15.00 pm
