About Remain in France Together - RIFT
Welcome to RIFT: Remain in France Together
We represent the interests of UK citizens living in France and aim to defend their citizens' rights. We are mainly an online Facebook community but hope our message will reach those not on social media.
Remain in France Together supports the rights of UK citizens living in France during the period following the EU referendum of 23 June 2016. We don't believe that Brexit should impact our rights as we mostly moved to France when the rules were clear and we expected to rely on our rights as EU citizens. We do not want to see citizens disadvantaged by Brexit and suffering through ignorance of their rights.
Who is RIFT?
Remain in France Together RIFT - Citizens Rights is a Facebook group of 17,000+ UK citizens living or hoping to live, in France. It was set up just after the referendum. We help each other through the sharing of factual information and aim to protect our citizens' rights.
We try to do all this:
we share information, help and support each other regarding rights and administrative issues that affect the lives of UK citizens in France post the referendum and post-Brexit
we campaign for the rights of UK citizens living in France
we raise awareness of the situation of UK citizens in France post-Brexit
we coordinate our activities with other groups representing UK citizens in the EU
