Our vision is of a society enriched and empowered through the full participation of its citizens and permanent residents. We believe each individual should be valued for what they can become, so that communities can grow together in solidarity and peace.
Our mission is to inform EU citizens in the UK and Britons in Europe about their rights, help them to find their voice, and encourage them to play a full part in the local and democratic life of their communities.
We achieve this through our:
Grant-funded projects which support EU citizens in the UK and Britons in Europe, for example, to acquire settled status or to register to vote.
Membership-led campaigns to make practical improvements to the lives of EU citizens in the UK and Britons in Europe, funded by donations.
Pro-bono, expert-led initiatives, aimed at informing and focussing the public debate about the situation of EU citizens in the UK and Britons in Europe.
