The impact of Brexit on local people

The impact of Brexit on local people

Local people will be wondering about what difference the vote to leave the EU will have on their day to day lives. Citizens Advice Kingston as lead agency for kiaa (our local network of information and advice agencies) will have a key role in making sure that information and advice is shared with local people.

Here is the first note from Citizens Advice central :

The UK public has voted to leave the EU. This means it’s likely that some laws will change in the future – but not immediately.

Everything will stay the same until new laws are made.

If you’re an EU citizen living in the UK, your rights to live, work or get benefits won’t change unless the government passes new laws.

If you’re a UK citizen living in the EU or travelling to the EU, your rights won’t change yet either.

You don’t need to take any action now. Changes to the law will be announced before they happen, so you’ll have time to prepare if you’re affected
