    Hi Starry Mountain,

    There are lots of worries for people at this time and lots of uncertainty. This is understandable, the result of the referendum has thrown us all and there's lots of scaremongering in the media on both sides.

    As things stand, the UK government hasn't triggered the formal notice process to leave the EU. Until then, everything remains the same. There is no way of knowing at this very early stage what will happen to EU Citizens residing in this country or for British people living and working in EU countries. This will all be dealt with if and when the formal notice proceedings are triggered.
    All we can do is keep up with all the developments as they happen.

    Try not to worry and get in touch any time if you have any further specific questions. There may not be any answers we can offer right now but they will come in time and we will continue to closely monitor the situation and advise people as best we can.

    Wishing you all the very best
    Debbie :)

    Hi @Starry Mountain - you can also see Scope's official response to the referendum here: http://www.scope.org.uk/About-Us/Media/Press-releases/June-2016/Scope-statement-on-the-EU-Referendum

    Scope will still be working with politicians and disabled people to ensure that disability issues and rights are kept at the top of the agenda.
