Letter to EU Nationals from SODC

South Oxfordshire District Council has written to thousands of residents of our district who are EU nationals from countries outside of the UK. The letter explains what affected residents need to do to remain in the UK after Brexit and signposts them to further information. For data protection reasons, we were not able to send this letter to all our affected residents, and so we would like your support to help us reach as many more as possible. Click here to read the letter and we would be very grateful if you were able to use any of your communications channels as appropriate to spread the word, and to help us get it out to any hard-to- reach communities in your area.
