Brexit advice hub for local government

We know that many of our members will be preparing plans for different Brexit scenarios and may have received different advice and communications from a variety of sources. For this reason, we have compiled useful national advice, sorted by topic area, in one place.

EU Settlement Scheme – one million people granted status

The Government has announced that over one million people have been granted settled or pre-settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme. This milestone has been reached in part through the good work councils have done to communicate the scheme to eligible residents. To support your efforts, the Home Office has produced a community leader toolkit for use on social and in local media, as well as material for your websites or publications.
