Charities warned to prepare for no-deal Brexit
The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NVCO) are urging the new minister for civil society to make sure charities are not ignored and receive the funding they need to prepare for a no-deal Brexit.
After the recent decision to prorogue parliament was made at the end of August, professional bodies for the voluntary & charity sector have warned charities to prepare for the worst possible outcome which they believe would be a no deal Brexit. The main reason for the announcement is because forthcoming research from the Charity Finance Group (CFG) is suggesting that 75% of charities have made little or no preparation for a no-deal Brexit.

Caron Bradshaw, chief executive officer at CFG said in her own blog post: “It’s understandable that this is the case because we all know how detrimental to planning such high levels of uncertainty and volatility are. But we must step up our preparation and government needs to provide support for the sector.”
