Sheffield roundtable: Brexit & Civil Society

  • Workstation 15 Paternoster Row Sheffield, England, S1 United Kingdom (map)

Brexit Civil Society Alliance is hosting a roundtable discussion on what Brexit means for the civil society sector in Sheffield on Tuesday 25th June, 13:30 to 16:30.

It is evident that Brexit will have significant impacts on civil society from questions around the replacement of EU funding that the third sector receives, to the maintenance of fundamental rights, to key legislative changes that will arise as a result of EU withdrawal.

The event will bring civil society and relevant stakeholders together to network, share information and discuss what happens next and how the third sector in Sheffield can best prepare for exit day. It will also be an opportunity to express thoughts and concerns about Brexit's impact on civil society.

About the Brexit Civil Society Alliance

Established in July 2017 the Alliance has been active in helping to shape and improve Brexit legislation, connect politicians with civil society and help educate, inform and advocate for those who may feel remote from the Brexit process.

We help to give a voice to a wide range of groups in the Brexit process, from across all parts of the UK - connecting Wales, Scotland, Northern and Ireland and England. Organisations and sectors in human rights, the environment, consumer and workers rights, equality, democracy, food, farming, trade and further education are all working together to ensure that rights, standards, environmental protections and devolution is protected as we make our exit from the European Union.

We take no position on Brexit itself but seek to raise the concerns of member organisations and push for the best possible policy outcomes for our organisations and wider civil society as we leave the EU.
