EU Referendum

Brexit implications for the voluntary sector

30/06/2016

This paper was first published by the NCVO on www.ncvo.org.uk/.

Implications for charities and community groups from the Brexit referendum include political uncertainty, slow progress on government policy change, and potential financial challenges, according to a new briefing from NCVO.

The briefing, NCVO's first on the implications of Brexit, covers the political landscape, funding and finance, social implications, regulatory change and the role of civil society.

  • This is NCVO’s first overview of Brexit for voluntary organisations following the event
  • It is likely that the impact of Brexit in the short term will be over-estimated; but impact in the long-term will be under-estimated
  • Analysis focuses on risks: but amidst much uncertainty, the commentary requires many assumptions. These may change.
  • In particular, there are different Brexit scenarios –such as whether the UK remains in the single market. NCVO will reflect on these in our next overview.
