Brexit is an issue which permeates all walks of British life and of civil society. We advocate for DCMS and DExEU to engage in a more comprehensive and open dialogue with our members to ensure that the voice of civil society is heard during the process of exiting the EU – and beyond.
The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and Department for Exiting the European Union (DExEU) should consult with charities on issues which will affect the sector and clearly communicate the work they are doing to represent the sector and seek the best possible settlement for them.
Following the referendum on EU membership, we consulted with our members on the impact they felt this may have on their organisations. We have fed the results of this consultation into our discussions with DCMS around Brexit.
