The next forum meeting will take place on the 24 July, 9.30 – 12.30.

  Brexit forum Eng


WCVA, in partnership with Cardiff University, has formed a project to help the third sector better engage with and influence Brexit debate. 

The project aims to:

  • connect third sector organisations and leading industry experts to stimulate informed debate and discussion 
  • enable groups and experts to share knowledge
  • develop shared third sector positions and take coordinated action where relevant

As part of the project we've established a Brexit Civil Society Forum. The purpose of the Forum is to get a clear steer from members on their key areas of Brexit interest, what their main concerns are and what they want to influence. This will help guide the direction of the project and its activities. 

The next Forum meeting is taking place on the 24 July, 9.30 - 12.30  at the Culture and Media Centre, Loudoun Square, Cardiff and is open to all third sector organsiations. 

We will hear from key speakers, including Glynne Jones, Director of the Wales Office, followed by breakout sessions and group discussion. To help us plan in advance, can you please indicate in your reply which one of the following breakout sessions you would prefer to attend:

  • equality and human rights
  • EU funding and research
  • immigration policy and migrant communities
  • environmental rights and protections

You can download the agenda here.

There will be the opportunity to hear feedback from each of the sessions in the latter part of the meeting.

Please email jwilliams@wcva.org.uk to confirm your attendance and indicate if you wish to contribute to the session in English or Welsh by Wednesday 18th July.
