Citizenship rights for children

In partnership with PositiveNegatives, Kids in Need of Defense UK, and The Project for the Registration of Children as British Citizens (PRCBC) we launched Belonging, a pro bono initiative in part focused on raising awareness of the citizenship law rights of the children of Swiss and EEA national parents living in the UK.

Brexit has caused a spike in people making decisions around citizenship, and this area of law is complex; people born in the UK will not always automatically be British citizens. In order to safeguard the future of children under their care, parents and guardians need to understand their options and rights to live in the UK. This project is set out to equip people with the right knowledge to navigate the challenges and make informed decisions.

We created a comic, an article, and a leaflet to strengthen the rule of law and tell people about their rights. Along with our partners, we have been working to highlight the complexities in this area and encourage people to seek specialist legal advice.
