Preparing for the Impact of a no-deal Brexit on Voluntary Organisations in Wales

The Wales Civil Society Forum on Brexit project is pleased to invite voluntary organisations to a discussion on the impact of a no-deal Brexit in Wales. At the time of writing the UK Government’s policy is to leave the EU without an agreement and there is no obvious parliamentary route to prevent this outcome.

Both the Welsh and UK Governments have been undertaking extensive preparations to mitigate this impact and have invited organisations to share what they think is needed to support the sector in preparing for and managing the implications of leaving the EU without an agreement.

To support the sector in articulating this information and to facilitate the sharing of work and resources, we would like to invite you to join us for an event on preparing the voluntary sector for the impact of a no-deal Brexit.

With just over one month to go before 31 October, we will welcome a panel of speakers to discuss the current state of Brexit focusing on the latest developments, what the impact, specifically of a no-deal Brexit might be for organisations and how they could prepare. This be followed by an opportunity for wider discussion and plenty of time for questions.

Panel and Agenda to follow soon!
