June 2016 Following the result of the EU referendum, the third sector European team (3-SET) hosted a webinar 'Implications for the Voluntary Sector in Wales'. It was an interactive session which summarised some of the key outcomes to date and focused on the recent changes in both UK and Welsh politics, the social implications and funding landscape. During the webinar, there was a Q&A session for which viewers were invited to submit their questions and concerns. The questions asked have formed the base of an ever evolving FAQ section which can be seen below. The webinar was the first step in what will be an ongoing dialogue with the sector as we move through the coming months and years.

June 2016 We have published a briefing paper on the EU referendum result and its implications for the third sector in Wales.

In it, we look at the key role the sector plays in bringing the sector together and ask for 'urgent assurance' that groups receiving EU funding will not be affected in the short term, and state the importance of the sector's voice in shaping new relationships and priorities following the referendum.
