We will ensure that the consequences of Brexit for the Scottish Voluntary sector are understood and addressed.
Brexit will have a huge impact on all sectors and communities. It will affect our laws, human rights and standards, funding, migration and the health of our economy.
Through surveys and events we have listened to the sector and taken action in a range of Brexit-related areas. We have:
- Championed the contribution of EU citizens to our sector
- Advocated for a replacement to crucial EU funds;
- Sought to protect hard won human rights.
As new powers return from the EU, we will work with colleagues across the UK to protect and enhance the devolution settlement.
We know voluntary organisations are concerned about what happens next.
Decision making around Brexit and its consequences must be transparent. We will ensure the sector is included, heard and understood.
