About

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 are RIFT?

Remain in France Together - Citizens Rights (RIFT CR) is a Facebook group of 15000+ UK citizens living in France, that was set up right 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 in future potentially post Brexit

​​

  • we campaign for the rights of UK citizens living in France 

​​

  • we raise awareness of the situation of UK citizens in France after Brexit; 
     

  • we coordinate our activities with other groups representing UK citizens in the EU

Our Credo

 

We believe that any Brexit outcome should respect the acquired rights of UK citizens living in France.

 

We should be free to live, work, move, access pensions, and receive medical care on the same basis as before the referendum. 

 

We believe that this is best achieved by the UK remaining in the EU and want to see Article 50 revoked. If that fails we want a deal that completely guarantees all of our existing rights. If that fails our citizens' rights should be ring-fenced and protected under an international treaty.

We believe that any Brexit outcome should respect the acquired rights of British citizens living in France. We should be free to live, work, move, access pensions, receive medical care on the same basis as before the referendum. 

Our Mission

We represent the interests of the British people living in France and try to defend their citizens' rights. We are mainly an online community but hope our message reaches those not online.
