“Every time I come to a Rights of Women conference I come away richer in knowledge and invigorated to put it to use.”
Our timely conferences, workshops and seminars provide an opportunity for practitioners from both the public sector and the community and voluntary sectors to learn about and debate current issues of law and policy affecting women.
We seek to ensure that even the smallest of women’s community organisations are able to access our events, so that they are able to make the voices of the women they work with heard in these debates.

‘Brexit: Vulnerable groups accessing the EU Settlement Scheme for EU citizens and their family members’
Speaker: Nicole Masri, Rights of Women
Government policy is that all EU citizens and their family members resident in the UK must apply to remain in the UK after Brexit. This compulsory application process for over 3 million people in the UK poses a risk to vulnerable groups in particular who may fail to secure their status in time. This seminar will address the basics of the EU Settlement Scheme, the barriers vulnerable people may have in accessing it as well as the government’s plan to address these barriers.
Wednesday 30 January 2019
6.30 pm to 8.30 pm
Regent’s University – Tuke Common Room
Regent’s Park NW1 4NS
