Brexit Civil Society AllianceLloyds Bank Foundation, England & Wales10GM and NPC are hosting a free 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 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.

We believe 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.

Speakers include:

  • Helen Goulden, Young Foundation
  • Alison Page, Salford CVS
  • Rachel Rank, 360Giving
  • Duncan Shrubsole, Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales
  • Jane Thomas, Brexit Civil Society Alliance
  • Mike Wild, MACC
