Camden and Brexit
There are 24,000 residents in Camden who were born in EU countries, as well as 36,000 EU citizens who work in our borough. Family, friends, neighbours, and colleagues, these individuals shape our communities and play a vital role within our economy and public services.
Concerns have been raised about a lack of information and guidance from government so Camden Council is stepping in to make sure residents get the support they need as well as offering free assistance for residents who are required to go through the Home Office EU settlement scheme process.
Camden Council’s package of support to residents:
- provide officers to carry out the ID verification service free of charge to Camden EU residents and their children, and Camden staff members. We will be commencing this service on Monday 4 March 2019.
- frontline Council staff will be provided with up to date contact information so they are ready to signpost residents to the help they need.
- partner with key advice organisations to ensure that ongoing advice points are available.
- work with schools, community groups and voluntary organisations, to ensure all are prepared to show Camden residents where to access the support they need.
- invest in the council’s cohesion services to promote healthy communities.
