The Government has a long term plan and strategy to make sure that the sector is supported. Given the sector’s diversity, we recognise that there could be a broad range of implications and we are carefully assessing the impact of leaving the EU on the voluntary and community sector. We are also continuing to gather information and listen to the concerns and priorities of the charity sector.
