The ALLIANCE supports civil society letter noting detrimental impact on communities.

A UK wide alliance of charities, voluntary and campaigning organisations, has written to the Prime Minister Boris Johnson MP. The letter raises concerns that leaving the European Union (EU) without an agreement will have drastic implications for citizens and communities.

Coordinated by the UK wide Brexit Civil Society Project, the letter has been signed by 85 organisations and calls on the UK Government to urgently engage with our concerns about leaving the EU without a deal on the 31st October.

The letter notes: “A growing body of evidence shows that a no-deal Brexit would be detrimental to civil society and the communities that we work with. The uncertainty, the predicted economic shock, the prospect of legal uncertainty as well as the regression in rights and standards present a profound risk to the values civil society stands for.”
