- Created: 16 March 2017
The UK is facing a period of change and uncertainty following the outcome of the referendum on our membership of the EU.
The nature of the impacts on third sector organisations in Cardiff and those who rely on our services is something we at C3SC will be monitoring over the coming months.
Having access to reliable and objective information we know will be of vital importance for C3SC to represent the views and interests of our members as changes emerge, and to enable us to provide you with accurate and relevant information.
Therefore, we have launched the ‘Cardiff Third Sector Post-Referendum – What Next?’ web page.
Please get in touch if you have anything to share
C3SC will continue to support the local third sector, volunteering and community action to build strong communities through our advice, training, development, volunteering and support services through whatever may lie ahead.
