EU Citizens in the UK: Advice

EU referendum and social care

If you are an EU citizen living or working in the UK, your rights to live, work or get services won’t change unless or until the UK government passes new laws. If you think you have been discriminated against since the referendum result or told that your rights have changed, the Citizens Advice suggest you contact them.

The UK public has voted to leave the EU. This means it’s likely that some laws will change in the future – but not immediately.

Everything will stay the same until new laws are made.

If you’re an EU citizen living in the UK, your rights to live, work or get benefits won’t change unless the government passes new laws.

If you’re a UK citizen living in the EU or travelling to the EU, your rights won’t change yet either.

You don’t need to take any action now. Changes to the law will be announced before they happen, so you’ll have time to prepare if you’re affected.

If you think you’ve been discriminated against since the referendum, for example if you’ve been unfairly refused work or housing, or told your rights have changed, you should contact your nearest Citizens Advice.
