The impact of Brexit

08 February 2018

How would a reduction of EU workers impact your charity?

Charity Finance Group (CFG) is working with the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) to research the potential impact of Brexit on the charity sector workforce.

They want this report to help charities as they plan ahead as well as influence the government on Brexit.

There are around 30,000 EU/EEA workers in the charity sector, according to the latest available information - this has grown over the previous decade. 

CFG have worked with the IPPR to construct a short survey to understand how the loss of EU/EEA workers would impact on charities, what kind of skills gaps may be created and what actions charities would take to mitigate them.

This survey is important because this year the government is likely to introduce a new Immigration Bill which will lay out the immigration system for the UK after Brexit.

As our sector is one of the country's largest employers, CFG want it to work for charities, but need your input to help shape government thinking. 

This survey doesn't take long (they estimate around 13 minutes) and will really help strengthen the report and the sector's position. 

If you have any questions about the survey or would like to contribute further to this work please email Director of Policy and Engagement, Andrew O'Brien: andrew.o'[email protected] 

The survey will close on Monday 12 February.
