Croydon and Brexit
There are 26,000 residents in Croydon who were born in EU countries, as well as many more EU citizens who work in our borough. They are part of our communities and we value the vital role they play within our economy and public services.
We are determined to ensure that Croydon, its residents and businesses receive the best possible deal from Brexit. And we are working with our public sector and business partners and the community and voluntary sector in order to respond effectively to the challenges posed by Brexit.
We have set up these pages to provide you with the latest information on Brexit from central government and signpost you to the support and advice that is available. We will continue to update you with any developments as they happen.
At our December Cabinet meeting we set out our position on Brexit and our support for local residents and business. Download a copy of the cabinet report here.
You can follow the work we’re doing to promote our inclusive, welcoming and diverse borough under the hashtag #CroydonisOpen
Croydon Council is also committed to supporting its own staff, particularly those who are EU nationals.
Councillor Tony Newman, leader of Croydon Council, said: "We are incredibly proud of Croydon as a diverse, inclusive and welcoming borough. We want all our residents, communities and businesses to know that we are doing everything we can ensure they are supported and protected through this unsettling time."
