Stay In Scotland: support for EU citizens in Scotland
"I want to thank you for the contribution you make to Scotland. I am proud to say that this is your home, you are welcome here and we want you to stay."
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon wrote to EU citizens in Scotland last week to reiterate that you are all welcome in Scotland - and that we want to do everything we can to ensure you #StayInScotland even if Brexit does go ahead.

The Scottish Government has pledged £250,000 for community based support across Scotland, introduced a support and advice service for EU citizens with more complex needs or particular challenges, and built a toolkit for employers which includes posters, factsheets, digital content and a guide directing EU citizens to further guidance.
