Europe Direct East Midlands (North) Walk-in Centre Launch

Citizens Advice Broxtowe (CAB) are pleased to announce the launch of Europe Direct East Midlands (North) Walk-in Centre. The project, co-funded by the European Union (EU) and Broxtowe Borough Council is being set up to keep people informed about EU topics and help people and businesses prepare as the UK’s relationship with the European Union changes.

Most importantly it will act as an information point for EU citizens who live and work in the UK and need help to register under the EU Settlement Scheme. The Government recently made funds available to local authorities to help them prepare for Brexit and supporting this project forms part of Broxtowe’s response.

Neil Clurow, CAB’s Development Manager explains: “Europe Direct is an important first contact to find out about the EU. We are here for everyone irrespective of their views on Brexit. With the continued uncertainties during the extension of Article 50 and not knowing who will be the UK’s Prime Minister during the period until 31st October it is even more important that EU citizens living and working in the UK register under the EU Settlement Scheme before the UK leaves the EU. We are here to help them if they or their families assistance with registration.”

Europe Direct East Midlands (North) has been operating since January 2018 but the Walk-in Centre, based at the Citizens Advice office in Beeston is new and a response to the increasing requests for help.

The project is one of 12 Europe Direct services in the UK. Anyone can sign up to receive regular free updates about the EU and Brexit by completing the online subscription on the website or emailing europedirect@broxtowe.cab.org.uk.

If organisations or the public have a specific question about any matter related to the EU they can call 01773 532291 or visit the website. (Opens in a New Window)
