The Charity Commission emphasise it is essential that charities put plans into place for the UK departure from the EU. The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has published guidance to help civil society organisations get ready for Brexit.

It covers five key areas to consider, including what you need to do if your charity:

  • receives EU funding;
  • employs EU staff or has EU volunteers;
  • receives personal data from the EU;
  • imports or exports goods with the EU.

DCMS also recently hosted a joint webinar with The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) about charities and a no-deal Brexit, please see below:
