WCVA’s statement following the announcement made this morning regarding the referendum result in favour of the exit of Britain from the European Union.
It is currently too early to understand the programme of work
and the timeline around the exit from the union, however, WCVA are
in contact with our colleagues within Welsh Government and the
Senior Management team within WEFO and as soon as we have a clearer
idea of this plan we will update the sector accordingly.
We commit to lobby hard on behalf of the sector for the kind of
actions that European funds have supported over the years to now be
funded by UK/Welsh Government.
We will reinforce the focus on our role to:
- support the sector
- maximise the funds available
- collaborate and work together to develop and secure alternative
sources of funds to sustain charitable and community activity
