About us 

the3million is the largest campaign organisation for EU27 citizens in the UK, formed after the 2016 EU referendum to protect the rights of people who have made the UK their home.


We are  an organisation for and of immigrants. Instead of letting others represent us, we speak on our own behalf.


We take our name from the estimated number of EU citizens who moved from another member state, and have established a life in the UK. Our objectives are to:


  • Defend the right of EU27 citizens to live, work, study, raise families, and vote in the UK as they do now - whatever the outcome of Brexit.

  • Protect EU citizens’ rights through advocacy in UK and EU institutions, influencing public opinion, and mobilising European and British citizens.

  • Ensure that EU27 citizens in the UK know their rights and are empowered to stand up for them.


the3million is a not-for-profit organisation, incorporated under company number 11083851 as a limited company by guarantee. We are not party affiliated and do not take a position on whether the UK should leave or remain in the EU. We work with MPs and organisations across the political spectrum on the specific issue of protecting citizens’ rights.


We would be unable to keep going without financial backing from our supporters,  donors and foundations, (see logos below) as well as from IOM UK and the Greater London Authority who trust us in providing information services about Settled Status. 


If you can afford it, please join our supporters' scheme, or make a one-off donation today.


the3million is led by a steering committee chaired by Nicolas Hatton, a board of directors chaired by Katia Widlak and an advocacy group chaired by Ilse Mogensen and Dimitri Scarlato.
