In an online roundtable discussion, members of community groups and third & public sector organisations reflected on Brexit’s impact on EU citizens in North East Scotland. Six speakers presented diverse perspectives and more than 65 people attended the discussion that followed, raising the concerns of local communities.
Community members who attended the online roundtable event discussed how a sense of belonging was taken away during and after the Brexit campaign. They described how people in their communities stopped using their home languages outside, to prevent being targeted as ‘those migrants,’ which had a negative effect on their sense of belonging and feeling welcome.
