Stories for Change

"Stories for Change" is a photography exhibition on EU citizens' journeys, identity and belonging by Carolina Henriques and Linda Nagy.

The aim of their project is to better understand the lived experiences of EU citizens living in London and to represent them through objects, places and spaces.

This toolkit is intended to be a guide for organisations working with EU citizens and their family members with rights conferred by the Withdrawal Agreement who want to expand their campaigning for change.

 

It is intended to help organisations influence decision-makers, advocating for policy solutions informed and led by the lived experience of EU citizens in the UK who are facing issues with the EU Settlement Scheme.

Common Ground is a project funded by the EU Foreign Policy Instruments and delivered in partnership by Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini, the3million and British Future. Our aim is to build a more positive relationship between the UK and the EU.
 
Our mission is to empower and support the EU diaspora in the UK to thrive. We aim to to inspire and equip communities to build connections, celebrate our European identity and values, share knowledge and identify opportunities for collaborations and collective actions.
