New user-friendly and multilingual information sheets for EU citizens living in Scotland have been developed by Citizen Rights Project.
Citizens Rights Project have developed a series of factsheets (this link will take you away from our website) in different languages to help EU citizens access their rights in Scotland.
The information sheets explain, in simple terms, a number of essential rights for EU migrants and how they can be accessed.
So far, four of these factsheets have been translated into eight languages and contain resources for further support and guidance.
Factsheets have been created on:
- Universal Credit
- Social Security Rights
- Access to Benefits
- Maternity Rights
- The Right to Work
The factsheets have been translated into Hungarian, Italian, Latvian, Bulgarian, Spanish, Romanian, Lithuanian and Polish (with the exception of the factsheets on Maternity Rights, Pensions and the Right to Work).
The aim is to translate the rest, and include more languages, if funding is secured.
As the factsheets offer easy-to-understand guidance in different languages and provide further resources for support, they will ensure that navigating rights from housing to employment is as easy as possible.
This will significantly benefit EU citizens by guiding them through confusing systems which many are struggling through in their second language. This guidance is necessary to secure the rights EU citizens are entitled to.
Please email Citizens Rights Project (this link will take you away from our website) if you require a print out of any of the factsheets.
