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 across Wales.
