Supporting Europeans living in London

Westminster: welcoming to EU nationals

"Westminster thrives on diversity. EU nationals who are living in Westminster deserve to know that they have a long-term home here and are welcome.

I remain committed to our EU residents in the city and will do all I can to ensure that you continue to feel that Westminster is your home, now and after Brexit." 

Councillor Nickie Aiken, Leader of Westminster City Council
