#EUareValued

Despite not legally being required to leave Scotland, many EU nationals who have called Scotland their home are choosing to move away. According to the Office for National Statistics, 117,000 EU nationals left the UK in 2016, the year of the referendum – a 36% increase on 2015. This is partly due to the outcome of the referendum, the rhetoric used throughout the campaign and the media coverage of it.

While the third sector can do little to influence immigration policy, we believe it is crucial that we show solidarity with our European colleagues, make it absolutely clear that they are still very much welcome in Scotland, and support them to continue doing the great work they do in our communities.

We’ve created a page of resources with the aim to help third sector employers and employees understand the background, the changes affecting our EU colleagues, and how they can support them to continue to feel welcome and valued in Scotland.
