The Scottish Government have produced Stay in Scotland materials which will be sent to GP practices, nurseries, libraries and community centres across Inverclyde. The package of support includes the provision of advice services for citizens affected by the EU Settlement Scheme who may have more complex needs or face particular challenges. The service includes a national helpline where people can ger free, confidential and impartial advice.
The helpline can be contacted on 0800 916 9847 and for more information please visit www.cas.org.uk/brexit.
As we know 63.8% of people who voted in the EU referendum, in Inverclyde, voted to Remain and stay in both the Customs Union and Single Market.
However, we see the new right-wing UK Government determined to drag Scotland out of Europe on a no-deal which would be catastrophic for businesses and jobs throughout the country.
The Scottish Government have been consistent in it’s opposition to the UK Government plans and continue to argue in-favour of remaining in the European Union and the benefits which come with this, such as free movement of people, no tariffs on goods and reciprocal free healthcare.
All EU citizens living in Scotland are valued, welcome here, and we want them to stay.
