The purpose of Europe Direct East Midlands (North) is to engage with the public on European Union (EU) topics of relevance at a local and regional level, promote dialogue on EU issues and cooperate with local information networks.

Keeping the public informed about the EU is particularly important whilst the UK remains in a period in which Article 50 (the mechanism for leaving the EU) is extended  until 31st January 2020 and until such time as a Withdrawal Agreement has been approved.

We will try to keep people informed about any topics relating to EU institutions, legislation, programmes and general information about the EU, ‘EU Basics.’

During the period of the Article 50 extension we have prioritised:

  • Keeping the public informed about Brexit.

  • Providing up to date information to EU Citizens residing in the UK.

  • Ensuring young people are informed about the EU.

  • Communicating an understanding of the new political priorities of the European Union.

If you live in Leicestershire, Northamptonshire or Rutland you may wish to visit the Europe Direct East Midlands (South) website.

We will communicate through a number of channels and recommend that you register with us to receive regular email updates about EU developments, events and briefings we are holding across the East Midlands (North). This includes Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire.

If you have a specific question on an EU topic please call our dedicated telephone line 01773 532291 or send an email to europedirect@broxtowe.cab.org.uk
