Brexit continues to present serious challenges for the UK social sector. The three years since the country voted to leave the European Union (EU) have thrown up a series of questions — how best to respond to it, how to prepare for it, how to mitigate against it where needed—that remain unanswered.
Ongoing uncertainty for charities and voluntary organisations is as big an issue as it is for businesses, the likely impact on the people, places and causes they represent, just as great—but neither have received the debate and attention they rightly deserve.
There is urgent need for the social sector to discuss the momentous changes that Brexit will bring, provide a public platform to raise concerns and begin to develop a greater sense of collective understanding of, and responsibility for, the challenges ahead,
Building upon the success of the first New Frontiers conference held in London on 26 April, NPC, the Brexit Civil Society Alliance and Lloyds Bank Foundation (LBFEW) are working with the 10GM group of Greater Manchester Community & Voluntary Sector (CVS) bodies to host a second conference on 11 September 2019.
Who is the event for:
Leaders, thinkers and practitioners from across the sector—we want to bring charities and funders together. We are particularly keen to hear from charities whose funding is at risk from Brexit and/or whose mission has been affected by ongoing uncertainty and disruption re: the UK’s relationship with the EU.
