Residents

Brexit will result in a number of changes that impact on people and businesses in Staffordshire. With so much information available on Brexit, in can be difficult to understand how it will affect you, and how people and businesses can prepare for it.

Information if you live in the UK

Our relationship with the EU may change significantly after Brexit. The government has a special webpage that covers all of the information you will need for travelling, working and learning in the EU post-Brexit.

Information for EU citizens living in the UK

If you are an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, you and your family will be able to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK after 30 June 2021.

Community Groups

The government has produced a toolkit for community leaders, which gives groups the right tools and information to support EU citizens and their families.
