Today’s referendum decision that the United Kingdom will leave the European Union is likely to prompt questions about the potential implications for your organisation.

It may take months or even years for the extent of the impact on your organisation to become clear and, as the dust settles, we want to facilitate and support knowledge sharing within the charity and social enterprise sectors.

Join us for breakfast - Wednesday 13th July

We would like to invite you to join us for breakfast on Wednesday 13th July, 8:30am - 10:30am to discuss your queries and concerns.  A panel of BWB experts from the charity and social enterprise, immigration and employment teams will be there to discuss the issues that matter most to your organisation, together with European law expert Helen Mountfield QCfrom Matrix Chambers.

In the meantime, please do contact your usual BWB contact with any queries.  We plan to collate these so far as we can and respond to frequently asked questions in our mailings over the coming months

Immediate concerns

Your most immediate concerns may be immigration and employment related.  BWB’s immigration and employment teams are preparing themselves for a dramatic increase in enquiries from clients following today’s announcement. We had already been fielding many enquiries not only from EU nationals and their family members resident in the UK, but also from British citizens exercising rights of free movement, and from businesses too.

In time we can anticipate wholesale changes to the ability of EU nationals and their families to move to, or remain living and working in the UK. The changes may well impact also upon others in the immigration system. BWB will be there to advise and assist those who will have to navigate the consequences of the referendum result.

You may have particular concerns about whether there will be any immediate impact from the Brexit vote on other aspects of your current operations, such as your existing contracts and funding arrangements.  If so, please get in touch with your usual BWB contact.
