Stay in Scotland – Stakeholder Toolkit to Support EU Citizens

This week sees the relaunch for the Stay in Scotland campaign, encouraging EU citizens to apply to the UK Government’s EU Settlement Scheme.

EU Citizens living in Scotland, who have not yet applied, are being urged to apply now to avoid missing the deadline of 30 June, so they can carry on living, working and studying in Scotland. Irish citizens and people with indefinite leave to remain do not have to apply.

The Stay in Scotland campaign is being run from this week until 30th June on radio, digital, social, and press.
