York roundtable: Brexit & Civil Society

  • Priory Street Centre 15 Priory Street York, England, YO1 6ET United Kingdom (map)

The Brexit Civil Society Alliance is hosting a roundtable discussion with the third sector in York about the impacts Brexit will have on the sector. 

From questions around the replacement of EU funding that the third sector receives, the settled status scheme to the maintenance of fundamental rights, it is evident that Brexit will have significant impacts on civil society. 

The Brexit Civil Society Alliance is hosting a roundtable discussion on what Brexit means for the third sector in York. The event will bring civil society and relevant stakeholders together to network and share information and discuss what happens next and how York third sector can best prepare for exit day. It will also be an opportunity to express thoughts and concerns about Brexit's impact on civil society.

Expert speakers will provide information around funding post-Brexit, environmental protections & immigration:
