The Government has a duty to inform citizens and businesses about how leaving the European Union might affect them, and to advise on the steps they may need to take to prepare for EU exit.

We have developed a cross-departmental public information campaign to help achieve this. Over the coming weeks, we will be using a range of channels to direct United Kingdom citizens, businesses, EU citizens living in the UK and UK nationals living in the EU to a dedicated area on GOV.UK at

Information on the costs associated with this campaign will be released in due course as part of normal data transparency releases.
