Common Ground - Empowering EU citizens in the UK

Project partners taking part in the launch event in London at Europe House.

Common Ground is a two year project delivered by Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini, the3million and British Future and funded by the European Union. We support communities of EU citizens in the UK to thrive.

Our mission is to inspire more empowered EU communities in the UK by building connections, celebrating our shared European identity and sharing knowledge, with the aim of building a more positive relationship between the UK and the EU.


Millions of EU citizens have made the UK our home, with the country having the largest diaspora of EU citizens in the world. Our communities are incredibly diverse, with people of all ages, backgrounds, ethnicities and life experiences sharing a common identity.

Common Ground aims to facilitate new activities, conversations and dialogues to strengthen the network of EU citizens in the UK, enabling grassroots groups across the country to have their voices heard and contributions celebrated.

Through events, workshops and campaigns informed by research, we will work with civil society organisations and grassroots leaders to build even stronger and positive ties between the UK and the EU.
