New Frontiers: The Social Sector Through Brexit
Event Venue and Description – The Mechanics Centre, 103 Princess Street, Manchester
The Brexit Civil Society Alliance, NPC and the Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales are hosting a conference bringing together the Social Sector to discuss the potentially momentous changes Brexit will have on charities, voluntary organisations and the communities they champion and represent.
Brexit 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 and how to mitigate against it where needed? – that remain unanswered.
Ongoing uncertainty for charities and voluntary organisations is as big an issues as it is for business. The likely impact on the people, places and causes they represent, are just as great – but neither have received the debate or attention they rightly deserve.
There is an 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.
This event will ask the following:
- Is the sector prepared for Brexit?
- What will the funding environment look like post-Brexit, how will it be delivered, and by who?
- What effect will Brexit have on philanthropic funder behaviours?
- How has the sector come together to champion the rights of EU nationals in post-Brexit Britain?
- What should the role and mission of the sector be post-Brexit?
- Is there a need to re-think the nature of the relationship/commitment to so called left-behind Brexit voting areas?
- What new opportunities are there for the sector?
